China Drum — Down By The River lyrics

Girls are walking with their mothers, shopping for clothes
Sons are sitting with their fathers, fishing for ideas in their souls

Down by the river, it's getting cold
Down by the river, it's getting cold
It's getting cold

The roads are stained, it seems impossible, impossible to clean
The oil and the salt mix to a shiny, shiny gleam

Down by the river, it's getting cold
Down by the river, it's getting cold

But it won't stop the bastards trying
And it won't stop the people from dying
But it won't stop the bastards trying
And it's all because of you
All because of you
Because of you

Girls are walking with their mothers, shopping for clothes
Sons are sitting with their fathers, fishing for ideas in their souls

Down by the river, it's getting cold
Down by the river, it's getting cold

But it won't stop the bastards trying
And it won't stop the people from dying
But it won't stop the bastards trying
And it's all because of you
All because of you

Down by the river it's getting cold
Down by the river it's getting cold
Because of you
Down by the river it's getting cold
Down by the river it's getting cold
