  • By moonlight we found our way down to the river
    And searched for the crossing there
    Where people-less leaders watch the children of chaos
    Fall into disorder
    We took the sky my sisters and I
    With the angels we met on the way
    Saw the soul of Joe Strummer dance the Bo Diddley
    Standing on the grave of James Earl Ray

    My mother the water
    My father the sun in a bit of sky
    I am the road beside the highway through town
    My mother the water
    My father the sun in a bit of sky
    I am the road beside the highway through town

    From my father I learned anger
    From my mother I learned hope
    But now it's later and I am older
    I am grateful for both

    By sunrise we came to the crossing
    Where the old dogs were sniffing the ground
    To rise out of Omaha high through the Flatirons
    Down to the ocean
    And there by the sea my brother and me
    And the whiskey we were drinking
    Words, words, everywhere
    Not a thought for thinking

    My mother the water
    My father the sun in a bit of sky
    I am the road beside the highway through town
    My mother the water
    My father the sun in a bit of sky
    I am the road beside the highway through town
