She want him, want him not to go
He said I, I've got to go
She whispered I, I love you so
He said I, I've got to go


[ Chorus ]
Night falls on the river valley
Night falls on the minds and fields
Night falls on the just and unjust
Night falls


In the next town there's trouble, needs straightening out
There's dynamite under the porch
Me and my four kids are hungry
A man's yelling through the screen door

[ Chorus ]

All they can in the morning
Shoulder to shoulder, end to end
You don't have to speak
You just have to stand

Steve, Sud and dad there on the bridge
Local three ninety three was born
A black and white picture of the colon of the lord
The dam was broken, the river comes

[ Chorus ]

She want him, want him not go
He said I, I've got to go
She whispered I, I love you so
Night falls
Night falls
