Hayes Carll – Rivertown lyrics

Take me to a rivertown where you can't tell night from day
Everythings forgiven that did not wash away
Where dreaming comes too easy, livings twice as hard
And everything is burried, beneath the water and the stars

Yeah I am from Corsican', wayward on the storm
I've been rolling empty sevens since the day that I was born
I've got no rings upon my fingers, no ink beneath my skin
I'll be as clean going out as I was coming in

Chorus

I'm gonna wash my sins in the Angilina river
When all that she can take from me, is all that I can give her
And time will bring you down, and time will make you cold
I've turned my back some time ago, and now I'm going home

Well I wondered through the pine trees like an outlaw in the rain
I rambled through big thicket with a pistol and my name
Run away restless angels, don't waste your love on me
Just lay me down in a river town, and home is where I'll be

Chorus

Well take me to the rivertown where you can't tell night from day
Everythings forgiven that did not wash away
