Let the River Wash Away the Blues
LIVE at the LARK- track 8
music and lyrics: Tracey Roberts © 2016


 

When your weary knees scrape on the ground
And you’re struggling to climb out of the hole
Just go in search of that trickling sound
Find a place to bathe your soul

Where it’s calm and the sleepy trees know
That the water tastes like the truth
And sunlight can heal with its glistening glow
So shake off your shirt
Throw down your hat
Kick off your worn out shoes
And let the river wash away the blues
Let the river wash away the blues

Surrender as you lay yourself down
And forgiveness will flow in sparkling ribbons of light
Clean off the dirt, watch your demons drown
And have a little faith that everything will be alright

In the river there is no pain
And the rocks under your feet are friendly and smooth
The kiss of the current will give you strength again
To put smiles in your tears
Warmth in your heart
Your spirit will find its way through
Let the river wash away the blues
Let the river wash away the blues

Mother Nature always finds a way
To make tomorrow a better day

So shake off your shirt
Throw down your hat
Kick off your worn out shoes
Let the river wash away the blues
Let the river wash away the blues
Let the river wash away the blues
Let the river wash away the blues   

Let the river, let the river…wash away… the blues…
