lyrics

Dried Up River

There’s a ghost down on the highway with a rifle in his hand
And he’s pointing that thing my way and I’m frozen where I stand

How I got here ain’t no telling, staring death right in the eye
But the bullet’s in the chamber, I never said my last goodbye

Oh it’s just another dried up river and not a raincloud in the sky
What’s a man to do but linger
When his time has come to die?

Never was one much for praying, figured God was just a lie
Told by some old dirty preacher who lifts your wallet on the sly

But praying’s what I’m doing right now on my knees down in the dust
Acting like some cardboard hero with not a soul that he can trust

Oh it’s just another dried up river and not a raincloud in the sky
I’ve always given God the finger
Now I‘m kinda wondering why

They say it all goes by like water, everything you ever done
All the good, the bad, the boring, when you’re staring down a gun

But now that ghost he’s kinda smiling and he turns and walks away
With a word back o’er his shoulder, “Today just ain’t your dying day”

Oh it’s just another dried up river and not a raincloud in the sky
But can you trust the song or singer?
Is there truth wrapped in my lie?

Oh it’s just another dried up river…
