South of the River Lyrics

Tom Misch
I want to stay South of the River
With the chains and the gold
We can be out here together;
But, you have places to go


Watching the sunshine blaze the gray
I don't know why you wouldn't stay
You should come South of the River
Where the loving is gold

You should come South of the River
This is where it all starts
I think that we could stay here forever
Lie on the roof til' it's dark


And when the last bus pulls away
I swear that I almost heard you say
"I should move South of the River."
I want to get to know
I want to get to know, oh

I want to stay South of the River
