lyrics

I was floating down a river, or was it floating up to me
If I get real drunk and I fall asleep, would I wake up out at sea?

I was standing in the water, I was screaming at the lightning
When a young girl came and she passed me by
She said, “Boy, why are you so frightening?”

Too busy to look for shelter, we just laughed aloud instead
Seasick smiles on our faces, just there I might have lost my head

We were just too high to be afraid, and the rain was so damn lovely
I wasn’t praying for my death that day
I was praying for electricity, man

There was an Indian princess and an emaciated Civil War soldier
There was a grown man wearing a little girl’s dress
The world was cold, but the water was colder

I’m not asking for that much, I think
So just smile and look my way
The Blackwater and the summer beer
Just came and washed all my worries away
