River's Gonna Rise
God ain't in his heaven Something ain't right I hear church bells ringing In the middle of the night They're dragging a man by his insides Through the broad daylight Thieves have their season sure But it's getting on midnight And the river's gonna rise It's gonna rise There'll be dancing in the street When the river done rise Cold wind is blowing Flags flapping much too slow The monkey men sell paradise To the girls from Tupelo Black shirted boys in the badlands Play machine gun rodeo The downtown missions packed too tight With folks that got nowhere to go But the river's gonna rise It's gonna rise And there'll be dancing in the street When the river done rise God ain't in his heaven Something ain't right The TV newsman smiles and says The curfew starts tonight They're killing a man from the inside In the broad daylight While the propped up puppet wags his head And watches all the proud things die But the river's gonna rise
