Brian Elder – Carry On This Mighty Water lyrics

“Carry On This Mighty Water”

Missourah, Mississippi River
Missourah, Mississippi River

Idle hands would beg the task,
Give us cause to build this land,
Raise a bridge so we may pass,
There’s no place that we shall not go.

Missourah, Mississippi River
Missourah, Mississippi River

Crossroads spun our lives away,
Some bartered fortune for fame,
But, there is no price we would not pay,
To put this city back the same.

Carry on this mighty water,
To the place I call home,
Break these rocks and free her heart beat,
The time has come for her to show,
And let this river flow.

Our pain still cuts to the bone,
Lay down these passions of blame,
Lay down these reasons for shame,
We share in these waters the same.

There’s an arch beyond these shores,
A comfort in the blues we share,
A history we can restore,
This is the moment we dare,
This is the moment we dare.

Carry on this mighty water,
To the place I call home,
Break these rocks and free her heart beat,
The time has come for her to show,
And let this river...

Carry on this mighty water,
To the place I call home,
Break these rocks and free her heart beat,
The time has come for her to show,
And let this river flow.

Missourah, Mississippi River,
Missourah, Mississippi River
