LYRIC
To the Red River

Ride with me now to the Red River
You're growing out your long hair for the fall
Swim through the trees, dignity abandoned
Stringing up another diploma along hickory wall
We can never remember the tarp that goes between the crusted earth and the Eureka floor
Look, all I'm saying is if the rain falls you can rely on me
To rely on you more

Oh, chimney tops
Smoking in the half-light
Joshua talking through the old rock window
Bertram and boot, rolling up a fat one
Stoking at the corporate radio bullshit, for real though

Copper kettle, liquid gold
You hover the fire, drink it all
Ecosystem in your hair
Showering sunlight, bending through the morning air

I will refrain from laboring to put you
Into the words to match your Victorian brain
But your springing up a silent paradoxical attraction
You are my very own Rachel Carson in a Bronco 1978
But we can never remember the tarp that goes between the crusted earth and the Eureka floor
Look I'm all saying is if the rain falls you can rely on me to rely on you more
