"Old Cold River" as written by and Brooks Nielsen Scott Montoya....
They drug me down to the old cold river
They’re gonna throw me in
Cuz I’ve been caught sleeping with the daughter
Of the only man in town who can swim
I’m facing the old cold river my back against the wind
They gon’ throw me down to the bottom of the river
Never to rise again
I sink down, down to the old cold bottom
Down, to rest with the fish
I sink down, down to the old cold bottom just as the old man wished
The sea sleeps and the moon is hanging
Something I’d rather do
But I’m facing the old cold river
Bed of eternal blue
With no reason to breathe without the right to love free
Sleep in the deep, sink like a drink
Until again when we meet
I sink down, down to the old cold bottom
Without a hope in the clouds
Down down to the old cold bottom
To rest my bones in the ground
They can’t save me
Nobody can save me
They can’t save me now
They can’t save me
Nobody can save me if I must live without
I’d rather drown
Till I rise to the wide open sky
Down to the bottom old lonely bottom
Till I rise to the wide open sky
Leaving this place where love’s forbidden
Life without her love ain’t worth living....
