He inherited $1400 from his mother who lived in a house
In a town, in the Cascades
He hadn't seen her in 5 years
His step-brother drove him up there along with his
Step-brother's friend who he didn't know
To get the money, and some of her things,
To see where she had lived, maybe who she was
By seeing who she was with at the time

Oh the Cascades
The Cascades
Where the rivers are like moving lakes
Oh the Cascades
Where it's dark and wet and
You can disappear without a trace

On the way back he bought his girlfriend a camera
He bought his Dad a knife,
Them dinner and a case of beer
In the back he waited in the car while they say for hours in a bar
Because he was underage
Then in the mountains they pulled off on a forest service road
And they dragged him from the car
They all the money, his ID bracelet, and all of her things
And left him there with $1400

Oh the Cascades
Where the rivers are like moving lakes
Where it's always dark and wet with rain
And you can disappear without a trace
