"Dig Me a River" as written by and Gemma Ray....
Lord knows they tried to dig me a river
And they tried to etch out a stream
But the veins of my arm runs deeper
than those preachers could ever dream

And they tried to build me a mountain
With the earth they dug up and cast aside
And they tried to put a flag upon my head
It’s funny they even tried

God knows they tried to dig me a river
