Same Ol' River Lyrics

Same Old River((

I wish that I could be an indian(
on a painted pony so fast
(no one could ever catch me(
or get caught up in my past
(I’d ride and cross many rivers
(use many moons to tell time(
and I’d tell all the young warriors
(many moons ago this was mine (all mine((

same old river (same old sea(
same old water rushing over me(
same old moon( same old sun(
same old race that we’ve always run((

I wish that I could be a pirate(
and sail the ocean blue(
way before the big liners(
started sailing there too(
I’d bury most of my treasure(
so I wouldn’t leave a big hole(
and the only real sense of pleasure I’d get(
is that I would sail free in my soul

((I wish that I could be a slave y’all
(it really wouldn’t matter what kind
(I’d sing a song for fallen angels(
and try to be free in my mind(
then when no one was looking(
I’d drop my harness and plow(
I’d find my old contemporaries
(and wipe the shame from their brow((
I wish that I could be an outlaw(
riding from the laws of time
(an old vigilante against the seasons(
that I can’t help but rewind(
I’d always keep my revolver(
steady and fast at my side(
and I‘d rob a train bound for glory
(if I thought I needed a ride
