Tell me boy whatcha gonna do
Look at all the hurt inside of you
Do we go on or do we die
Can we hold out, can we get bye?

I miss my Dad, God rest his soul
Does Jesus love me any more?
The hills they do not hear me cry
I cannot stop this river rising
Appalachian River Song

This river town died long ago
I do not have one thing to show
For my Emily my love so true
Lord show me what I have to do

I do not have the angel's wings

I didn't come from a line of kings
Miracles I cannot do
I cannot breathe life into you
Appalachian River Song

Dagger deep, this river haunts me in my sleep
I will always keep hope inside me, hope inside me

Dear Mama I won't abandon you
We will find a way to make it through
Our luck is long over due
Mama I won't abandon you,

The cold wind howls and blows through the skeleton trees
My baby boy I cannot feed
Will Jesus Christ stretch out his hand,
When the taxman comes to take my land?
