st. louis


come in
sit down
i can see you’re new to this town
by the way you look
by the way you sound

come in
sit down
boy with a thistle crown
and a dimestore ring
little country king

you say you just followed the river
i say you knew you’d find me here
but you tell me the reason you came
is to find where the water runs clear
is to find where the river runs clear

stay in
my house
you can tell i’m a city mouse
by the way i sound
i’ll show you around

in some
cafe
we’ll dance the night away
then we’ll take a train
back the way we came

you say you just followed the river
i say: because you knew you’d find me here
but you tell me the only reason you came
is to find where the water runs clear
is to find where the river runs clear

boy take
your time
who needs water when you’ve got wine?
and a purse of gold
and a girl to hold

boy don't
you see
you’re the only one who can save me
from what i’ve become
in the city sun

please stay
with me
we’ll buy a house with an apple tree
i know nothing but
this mississippi mud

you say you just followed the river
you didn't know you’d find me here
but if i will come along with you
i can find where the water runs clear
i can find where the river runs clear.
