​Cottonwood River

This song is by El-Creepo! and appears on the album Aloha (2012).

Sittin' on the banks of the cottonwood river
Thinkin' what I left behind
The only woman that I've ever loved
A cold body and a sip of moonshine
The lawman's on my heels today
The sun is on my back
I'm headed east to higher ground
Along these railroad tracks

I can't look back now...

Only love kills a demon
Brings a man to his knees
Only death is awake
In this hour of need

The devils in gods garden
Spreading his disease
The sinners at the foot of Mary
Begging for reprieve

I can't look back now, I can't look back now
I can't look back now, I can't look back now

The needle to a junkie
The value to a thief
The guilt in the gospel
The faith in belief

Sittin' on the banks of the cottonwood river
Thinking what I left behind
The only woman that I've ever loved
A cold body and a sip of moonshine
The lawman's on my heels today
The sun is on my back
I'm headed east to higher ground
Along these railroad tracks

I can't look back now

Without a suitcase fate arrives
A salesmen at my door
As the reaper lays his hand on me
And I collapse down to the floor
A premonition, but that's all right
The sun will rise, then fade to night
I know When my day comes to die
I'll find peace on the other side

Sittin' on the banks of the cottonwood river
Thinking what I left behind
The only woman that I've ever loved
A cold body and a sip of moonshine
The lawman's on my heels today
The sun is on my back
I'm headed east to higher ground
Along these railroad tracks

I can't look back now
