Green River

Original and similar lyrics
Words and Music by John Fogerty Take me back down where cool water flows, y'all. Let me remember the things I've done: walk on the log where the catfish bite; walking along the river road at night; barefoot gir, dancin' in the moonlight. I can hear the bullfrog calling me. (ribbit) Wond'rin' if my rope's still hangin' to the tree. Ole Brody Juniour took me over; said you're gonna find a well that's colder. If I'm a bad boss, give some o'Green River. Well...

Leaves And Kings

JOSH RITTER "Josh Ritter"
I met you at a party or on a crowded street A silent singularity when glances chanced to meet You looked into my glasses, said you'd seen a ghost I tried my best to make you smile as we calypsoed close I have been to Cleveland and you have been to jail You seem to be recovering but I felt a little pale Our house it was on seventeenth above a hardware store And there we lived with seven cats all named for seven dwarves But like leaves and kings, all things must fall No diamond ring's gonna cut through it all You were working as a graverobber, you could do your job at night I was living hand to mouth just looking for a fight The reason why we parted it ain't that hard to find I was always busy, and you never had the time well the reason why we parted it ain't that hard to see But I was never sure if I left you or you left me [chorus] And when it was all over I lost myself in work You got married to a lawyer painting murals in New York (You got married to a dentist building bridges in New York) And though it seems a million miles ago since I saw the light The hours flowed by nervously like warships in the night Many times I've been corrupted but I've never been in love I began to realise that that's just where I was So I packed up my possessions and caught an east-bound train met you in Ohio sleeping in the rain [chorus] So now we're going back again to start where we began With rules and regulations but no real kind of plan I've learned my lesson well with no mistakes at all Once you find yourself true love you just keep holding on Like leaves and kings, all things must fall No diamond ring's gonna cut through it all but now out of the dark, out of the blue, like leaves and kings I've fallen in love with you

Green River

JOHN FOGERTY "The Long Road Home"
Well, take me back down where cool water flows, y'all. Let me remember things I love. Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite, Walkin' along the river road at night, Barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight. I can hear the bullfrog callin' me, oh. Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree. Love to kick my feet 'way down the shallow water, Shoo fly, dragonfly, get back t'mother. Pick up a flat rock; skip it across Green River. Well! Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, oh, With flat-car riders and cross-tie walkers. Old Cody, Junior took me over, Said, "You're gonna find the world is smold'rin', And if you get lost, come on home to Green River." Well! Come on home.

Walk On The Water

CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL "Creedence Clearwater Revival"
Late last night, I went for a walk, Down by the river near my home. Couldn't believe, with my own eyes, And I swear I'll never leave my home again. I saw a man walking on the water. Coming right at me from the other side. Calling out my name; Do not be afraid. Feet begin to run, pounding in my brain; I don't want to go; I don't want to go. No, no, no, no, no... I don't want to go. Mmmmmmm...
