Lyrics

  • WERE YOU RAISED BY THE RIVER
  • DOWN BY THE LOW LAND
  • WHERE THE AIR IS DARK AND SINISTER
  • IN THE NIGHT THERE’S NO SAFE PLACE TO STAND
  • HID IN REEDS ARE EYES THAT PEEK, VOICES I CAN’T UNDERSTAND
  • FLAMINGOS FLYING ENDLESSLY TO THE SILENT SKY
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • YOU NEVER MADE IT CLEAR
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • IF YOU WANTED TO BE HERE
  • CHILD OF THE RIVER
  • I NEVER SAW YOUR TEARS
  • WELL YOU LOOKED LIKE YOUR MAMA
  • BEFORE YOU WALKED YOU SWAM
  • LEARNED TO MAKE THE SNAKE TAILS STEW
  • FROM YOUR DADDY A CRAZY TALKING FISHERMAN
  • IN THIS PLACE THERE IS NO LAW THE RIVER MAKES ALL THE RULES
  • WHAT THEY ARE I FOUND OUT WHEN I CAME TO LOOK FOR YOU
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • WHY DID YOU BRING ME HERE
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • MY LOVE HAS TURNED TO FEAR
  • CHILD OF THE RIVER
  • LET ME FEEL YOU NEAR
  • WELL YOU LAUGHED IN THE CITY
  • BUT I KNEW AFTER A YEAR
  • THAT YOU’D CRY IN THE CITY
  • I SHOULD NOT HAVE BROUGHT YOU HERE
  • SO FAR FROM THE BAYOU, DOWN IN THE LOW LOW LAND
  • DON’T KNOW WHY YOU LEFT ME NOW I THINK I UNDERSTAND
  • TAKE ME BACK TO THE RIVER
  • DOWN IN THE SMOKEY GROUND
  • WHERE SNAKES CRAWL DON’T CHEAT
  • BY THE RIVER YOU LIVE FOR NOW
  • IN THE SWELL OF THE RIVER, THE RIVER BOAT SAILS BY SO PROUD
  • I SHOULD HAVE GONE THERE WITH YOU
  • BUT NOW THEY TELL ME YOU HAVE DROWNED
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • I COULD FEEL YOU NEAR
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • I KNOW I’LL FIND YOU HERE
  • CHILD OF THE RIVER
  • I CAN’T SEE FOR TEARS
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • I COULD FEEL YOU NEAR
  • DAUGHTER OF THE EVERGLADES
  • I KNOW I’LL FIND YOU HERE
  • CHILD OF THE RIVER
  • I CAN’T SEE FOR TEARS
