Marty Falle – Appalachian River Song lyrics

Tell me boy whatcha gonna do
Look at all the hurt inside of you
Do we go on or do we die
Can we hold out, can we get bye?

I miss my Dad, God rest his soul
Does Jesus love me any more?
The hills they do not hear me cry
I cannot stop this river rising
Appalachian River Song

This river town died long ago
I do not have one thing to show
For my Emily my love so true
Lord show me what I have to do

I do not have the angel's wings

I didn't come from a line of kings
Miracles I cannot do
I cannot breathe life into you
Appalachian River Song

Dagger deep, this river haunts me in my sleep
I will always keep hope inside me, hope inside me

Dear Mama I won't abandon you
We will find a way to make it through
Our luck is long over due
Mama I won't abandon you,

The cold wind howls and blows through the skeleton trees
My baby boy I cannot feed
Will Jesus Christ stretch out his hand,
When the taxman comes to take my land?
Appalachian River Song
