Amy Correia Lyrics

Blind River Boy 
 
There was a blind boy in Memphis, Tennessee 
Who heard the savior call but he could not see him 
He walked along the river's edge 
Among the weeds and the red clay bed 
And he thought that he might follow him
Thought that he might follow him 
He was walking with a can of warm beer in his hand 
And singing, ¡°Whole Lotta Love¡± 
Cicadas they were groaning in the trees 
Weaving drunkenly up toward the sun 
And he walked under the swollen sky 
And felt the weight of what it was 
  Oh blind river boy 
  Blind river boy 
  Where are you going to tonight 
He had a thought that he might stop and rest 
Under the weeping willow limbs 
And he decided to go wading 
And he left his boots and hat there on the ledge 
And he found his feet out walking 
Where the water bloomed a brilliant red 
  chorus 
He went into his waist and the water 
curled around him in a wake 
All the water singing 'round him 
What a lovely sound the water makes 
what a lovely sound the water makes 
Tenderly lifted like a woman in her 
lover's gentle arms 
The river pulled him under and 
he heard a tugboat far off call 
And a panic rose inside of him 
he knew he was in terrible terrible harm 
And now he's headed like a prayer to be spoken 
at the river's deepest sound 
  chorus
