SOMETHIN’ BOUT THE RIVER: A tale of a wandering drunkard who sees no way out other than the old bridge outside of town, despite the desperate attempts of his girl and his old man trying to talk him down, this song is cautionary and somber with a sing-along vibe a la “Friends O’ Mine” to finish it out in a “Hey Jude” style. Creeping organ and droning banjo accent lush electric and acoustic guitars at just the right back beat, laid back speed.

Lyrics

Sad days, dark cloud over me. No way, I could ever be free. Old man, front porch shootin' the breeze, told me, son I'm beggin' you please. Son I'm beggin' you please. Advice, if you wanna give me, I don't mind, come on down and see me. Somethin' 'bout the river babe it’s calling me now. Long nights swimmin' in the whiskey. Bright lights, take me from the city. Somethin' 'bout the river babe it’s got me down. Old bridge callin' out to me. I look down, Heaven's all I can see. Last breath, take it in and breathe. She cries boy I'm beggin' you please. Boy I'm beggin' you please. Na na, yeah-e-yeah yeah. Somethin' 'bout the river babe it’s got me down. Na na, yeah-e-yeah yeah. Somethin' 'bout the river babe it’s got me down. Everybody.
