Dry River Songtext
von James McMurtry

Dry River Songtext

I was born by a river
That was paved with cement
I was born by a river
That was paved with cement
Still I'd stand out in that river
And dream that I was soaking wet

(Chorus)
Someday it's gonna rain
Someday it's gonna pour
Someday that old dry river
Won't be dry anymore

I played in the orange groves
'Til they bulldozed the trees
I played in the orange groves
'Til they bulldozed the trees
Still I'd stand out in those dead stumps
And smell the blossoms on the leaves


(Chorus)
Some day it's gonna rain
Someday it's gonna pour
Someday those old dead trees
Won't be dead anymore

I fell in love with a woman
But she did not love me
I fell in love with a woman
But she did not love me
Now I'm as dry as that old river
And I'm as dead as those old trees
Someday it's gonna rain

(Chorus)
Someday it's gonna pour
Someday this old heart of mine's
Gonna fall in love once more
Someday it's gonna rain

Someday it's gonna pour
Someday that old dry river
Won't be dry anymore
