Elephant Revival – Rogue River (Live at Red Rocks)


See there down at the liquor store
Gone to drink those troubles in some more Down at the old Rogue River
That old Rogue River You were daddy’s sunshine days
He left, left for good went down to his grave Mother Mary full of grace won’t you
Watch these children in my place I’m going under the river
That old Rogue River Seemed that nothing could be said but sung
There’s a fire in the little ones Lord and it burns hot
Lord and it burns bright She believes in angels loving light
Watching over her and sisters too Mama and Papa gone angels will have to do
for now Lord have mercy in my dying days
There’s been too much leaving There’s been too much pain
Left my babies in the cold Now my heart it aches
I’ve been growing old Feel it rise up into my throat
Lay these troubles down Lift my soul
I’m going to Pray forgiveness
Let me go Pray my children
And their children know not to Do what I have done
But let go Lay these troubles down
Lift my soul Lift my soul Lift my soul up and over the river
That old Rogue River Lift up and over the river
That old Rogue River

    You were daddy's sunshine daisy
    Left for good, went down to his grave
    Mother Mary, full of grace
    Won't you watch these children
    In my place
    I'm going under the river
    That old rogue river (x 2)
    Seemed like nothing could be
    Said by song(?)
    There's a fire in the little ones, Lord
    It burns hot, Lord, and
    It burns bright
    She leaves an angel, locked in light(?)
    Watching over her and sisters too
    Mama and papa gone, angels will
    Have to do for now
    Lord, have mercy in my dying age
    There's been too much [?]
    And there's been too much shame
    Left my babies in the cold, now my
    Heart is aching 'cause I've been
    Growing old
    Feel is rise up into my throat
    Lay these troubles down and
    Lift my soul
    I'm goin' to
    Pray forgiveness
    Let me go
    Pray, my children and their children know
    Not to do what I have done
    But let go
    Lay these troubles down
    Lift my soul
    Lift my soul
    Lift my soul up and over the river
    That old rogue river
    Lift up and over the river
    That old road river
