lyrics

River of Souls – D. Allen

Silver ghosts of the cold blue sea
Silent witness to history
Gather into the harbors and bays
For ten million years you have found your way
They say you follow the smell
follow the stars as well
All the way to the promised land
Nature doesn’t always provide
but Uncle Sam is on your side
That’s what it says in the recovery plan

There’s a river of souls, going to the sea
Leave their bodies where they rest in peace
River of souls, flesh and bone
Follow the water, the water going home

River-wild or raised in a pen
Look the same if we feed them red
You were adopted as our native son
It’s a broken home, better find another one
Where has the water gone
how did it get so warm
Where is the snow you depend on
Dark cloud in the way
a storm of silt and clay
How do you fight through this wall of pain

There’s a river of souls, going to the sea
Leave their bodies where they rest in peace
River of souls, flesh and bone
Follow the water, the water going home

about

Doug Allen Bellingham, Washington

Big Timber is my second recording, reflecting what life has been like for me in the northwest corner of Washington state. It was long in coming but I'm proud of it and The Union Wage. Please listen to some of the tracks - I hope you like it.
