Sault Sainte Marie

This song is by Joe Henry and appears on the album Short Man's Room (1992).

In Sault Sainte Marie
The hills glow without the help of God
You can almost see
The river in November turn to steel;

If only I knew how
To wish you well in living without me,
You might forgive me now
And maybe I'd be free to go...

In Sault Sainte Marie
I wouldn't give you much for your chance
That is, if you were me
And thought that you could shoulder days gone by;
You don't owe me this
My dreams are not yours to pull ashore
Just because we kissed
Up on some swaying bridge.
In Sault Sainte Marie.

By now you know
I remember almost everything you say
Sometimes it goes to show
You're better off believing you misheard;
What is done is gone
And leaves me here alone and none too sure
And on my own
And maybe I'm just free to go...
From Sault Sainte Marie.

If only I knew how
To wish you well in living without me
You might forgive me now
And maybe I'd be free to go...
In Sault Sainte Marie

The hills glow without the help of God
And you can almost see
The river in November turn to steel.
