Jason Upton – Great River Road lyrics

I was born where the rivers run
Native blood runs through my veins
I was born where the eagles come
Waiting till the winter fades

I was born an endangered son
I was spared by a mother's dream
I was saved by the power of love
I was snatched from the fire of greed

Great river road where justice rolled
Let it roll, let it roll down
Great river road where healing flowed
Let it flow, let it flow now

I was born to an orphaned son
I was seed from a broken life
I was just like the other ones
Waiting on the other side

I was born because freedom won
Mother sent me down the stream
I was saved by the power of love
I was snatched from the fire of greed
