River Man

This song is by Lizz Wright and appears on the album Freedom & Surrender (2015).

Betty came by on her way
Said she had a word to say
About things today
And fallen leaves

Said she hadn't heard the news
Hadn't had the time to choose
A way to lose
A cheap leaves

Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the plan for lilac time

If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
And all night shows in summer time

Betty said she prayed today
For the sky to blow away
Or maybe stay
She wasn't sure

But when she thought of summer rain
Calling for mind again
She lost the pain
And stayed for more

Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the band on feeling free

If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
I don't suppose it's meant for me

Oh... how they come and go
Oh... how they come and go
