lyrics

Poor mama
Buried her the other day
Poor mama
Wasn't no place to lay

Poor papa
You know he miss her every day
Bad papa
Why'd you run away?

Poor sister
Got all them kids to raise
Oh my sister
You're too young to go grey

Preacher, preacher
Was it that you say?
"Oh my children
"Come on down to pray
"We're going down the river
"Down the river today
"Down the river, down the river, down the river way"

Bad water
Drink up all my land
Deep water
Ain't no place to stand
So see you later
I guess I'm going for a swim
See you later I guess
I'm gonna dive right in

Pick up the pieces
It ain't easy
Go on young one
You're no one's fool
And she's moved on
Yes, she's moved, yeah she's moved on
Goodbye
So long

The music veers from entrancing patterns that build and crash explosively through a mix of styles; folk, blues and stark, ethereal effects. As such, the songs lyrically approach themes of connection, joy, sacrifice and loss. ... more
