Pearl River Blues

Sitting here drinking on this river bank
not knowing the time. Days of whiskey fever
nights of cocaine dreams
and I’m out of my mind.

Leaving you once was easy, I felt
free and alive, but your love
was stronger than me,
now you’re gone and I’m blind.

That river rolls down to the sea,
always has and always ever will.
I can’t make it to take my lies.

Words are more than something you talk.
Tears are more than water and salt.
