​Little Blue River/In The Garden

This song is by Over The Rhine and appears on the album Films for Radio (2001) by ​Over the Rhine.

Roll me over the little blue river
Church child
Roll me over the little blue river
Now church child

Silence and dumb tongues
It's a different kind of ghetto
Carry the weight
(It's heavy)
Of a disreputed fellow

Roll me over the little blue river
Church child
Roll me over the little blue river
Now church child

Every step that you've been taking
Is straying a little further south
As for me I am so tired of living (babe)
So hand-to-mouth

Roll me over the little blue river
Church child
Roll me over the little blue river
Now church child

Hey you wanna steady that cue card
Make it a billboard today
Everybody's saying they want their money back
Ah well baby just roll me away

Out of the mouth of them babies
How they can talk
Best be saving your pennies
Put 'em back for a very long walk
Roll me over the little blue river
Now church child
Roll me
