Hurray For The Riff Raff – Blood River lyrics

I grew up by the river Hudson
Deep and dark as your feet can sink
Stuck inside
The project buildings
Where the sun can never reach your face

You have
Had special something
You could hold the sky with yourself
Well you had the clouds
And you wanted out
So you blew this town

Well I'll just stand right here
Oh boy
Well I'll just stay right here
Ing me a song
It's been too long
Just you stay right here
I'll just stay right here
Oh boy
I'll just stay right here
Sing me a song
It's been too long
You just stay right here

And when I hear that old
Train whistle sing
I don't bother to look out my window
I know there's nowhere to run for me

Well our faces
They're all dirty
From the dust you kicked up with your shoes
Well you had your way
You couldn't stay
You just couldn't stay

So don't you come round here
Oh boy
Don't you come round here
You left your own blood
In the mud down here
