Renee Austin – Mouth Of The Delta lyrics

Standin' at the edge of the water
I feel my soul closin' in
Seekin' some inspiration
To lead me back home again

It's been a long hard winter
On the heels of a summer long drought
We're all in this together
We're all tryin' to figure this out

Ferry me down this river
Carry me through this great divide
Call the saints, hail the sinners
To the place where love runs deep and wide
To the mouth of the delta
Back to square one
The mouth of the delta
Let the sweet forgiveness come

I wanna dig in the richest earth
I wanna bake in the healing sun
I wanna be on sacred ground
When the ghosts of Mississippi come


My well ain't got no water
I can't see no clouds in sight
But I've got to find salvation
Find my way back home tonight
To the mouth of the delta
Back to square one
The mouth of the delta
Let the sweet, let the sweetness come
