I'm going down on the Nueces River
Gonna call my brother, ask him to meet me there
On the surface will be two men fishing
Down below we are brothers with a love to share

I'm gonna lay my burdens down now
Gonna ask the Lord to watch them a while
I'm gonna walk where the sun is shining
I'll be home when I have found a smile

There is a salt cedar tree that I know of
It can take a breeze and make a melody
I'm gonna climb up in those branches
And ask if it would whisper it's secrets to me

CHORUS

There'll come a time when the world is level
There was a time when the mountains grew
Then there is all that is here in the middle
And how it's spent is up to me and up to you

CHORUS
