​Tears Of The Earth

This song is by The Infamous Stringdusters and appears on the album Silver Sky (2012).

I've known rivers ancient and deep
I've seen the ripples in the moonlight, and the secrets they keep
Rushing like a torrent, and carving the land
Picking up trees, the stone and the sand

And the cities of man, grow up from the ground
They grow up so tall, where the river runs down
Paris to London, Boston New Orleans
From the heartland down to dixie, out to the seven seas.

Like the tears of the earth, the rivers they run
Coming down from the mountains in the bright morning sun
Where I clean my soul and get carried away
Let me stay in the valley by the river, one more day.

I remember a place, where mountains divide.
And I stood at the edge of the canyon so wide
I saw so many years, ten thousand before
And it will carve out the land, for ten thousand more

Like the tears of the earth, the rivers they run
Coming down from the mountains in the bright morning sun
Where I clean my soul and get carried away
Let me stay in the valley by the river, one more day.

When the first light of dawn heats up the dew
And the drops shine like diamonds where sunlight shines through
My heart can rest if just for a while
And my tired feet can walk for another mile

Like the tears of the earth, the rivers they run
Coming down from the mountains in the bright morning sun
Where I clean my soul and get carried away
Let me stay in the valley by the river, one more day.
