1. Muddy Water

From the recording High Tide

In cart Not available Out of stock


Drinking muddy water
From the dried up stream
Sun is beating hotter
Than living memories

Land is rock, red earth dust
Ain’t no living trees
Bird falls from the damn sky
Dead in front of me

Call the bank
Check the loan
Take my land, life, soul

I can’t sleep, I can’t breath
Worried sick no dreams
Guess I’m working harder
Than I’ve ever been

Bring that beast, bring that mule
They’re looking frail as me
I find nothing harder
Put me out of misery

Lock the gates, no entry
Where to lie the blame
Drinking muddy water
Wallow in the shame
