lyrics

There were planes in the clouds,
and we were on our own
They made the rain come down
and we sailed out on our homes,
well what do you do?
When you have nothing to lose

And the train knows this song
it knows how it goes
with a heavy, heavy heart of Alameda blues
well what do you do?
When you have so much to move?
We will know ourselves
and we just pray for rain and start singing

Oh, river take me
Oh, river take me
Oh, river take me home

They tried playing God,
they played him for a fool
with gold on their minds and oil on their boots
well, what do you do?
When your hand starts to bleed

With their mouths so parched
and their grips to grime
you hold your head up high
see the airplane in the sky
well what do you do?
When the thunder starts rolling in
The gods are playing for keeps
and we just pray for rain and start singing

Oh, river take me
Oh, river take me
Oh, river take me home

and we will strike them down
and we will strike them down
and we will strike them down
with a lightning bolt
