about

ALL THE RIVERS IN THE WORLD: A song sung under a low-hanging moon.  It ends in a wrenching falsetto howl. Close barber-shop quartet-style harmonies, but eerier. The slow-driving 6/8 tempo is all about sadness and regret. The things that passion can drive a man to do.  And the things you can't live with having done.

lyrics

I went down
Went down went down
To the river
I went down
Went down went down
To the river
I saw your perfect body
Ebbing there

I went down
Went down went down
To the river
The cold rushing water
Was washing through your hair

Lord, why’s my girl lying
In an early watery grave?
Lord, why did the sound of the wind in the trees
Bring music of tolling bells?

I went down
Went down went down
To the river
I went down
Went down went down
To the river
Last night
Under the light
Of the harvest moon

And I saw my girl standing in the arms
Of another man
Lord, why did the sound of the wind in the trees
Bring music of tolling bells

The blood in my ears
Was a drumbeat like thunder
And the things what I saw
Like a shot to the brain
As I held my
Beautiful girl under
The tears fell from my eyes
Like the warm, warm summer rain
There’s not enough water in all the rivers in the world
To wash away my shame

I’m gonna go down
Gonna go down go down
To the river
I’m gonna go down
Gonna lie down lie down
In the river
Take a deep breath of the water
And look to the stars

Gonna see my girl

Standing
At the gates of Paradise
And tell her I’m sorry
So, so sorry

Gonna see my girl
Standing
In the arms of
Jesus

Now I know why the sound of the wind in the trees
Brings music of tolling bells

The sound of the wind in the trees
Is gonna be me
Screaming
From Hell
