Between The River And Me Lyrics

I was 15 when my daddy died, mama worked 2 jobs just to get by
Seemed like a blessin' when Harley came around, so she took his name but I had my doubts.
Didn't take long for his drinkin' ways to start showin up on mama's face
One violent night hidin' under my bed swore that he wouldn't see another sunset.
The next day I followed him down to the river bank
I knew one of us, wouldn't walk away.

I might of had a plan but he didn't know it
I might have been scared but I didn't show it
That's all between the river and me
With the current and the rocks, coulda been risky
Might of been sober but I brought the whiskey
Thats all between the river and me.

I walked up to him and I said his name, just so he could see the look on my face
We stood eye to eye and toe to toe, when I told him that he wasn't gonna come back home
He raised his fist to me but I didn't flinch, I said, "I ain't your son, you son-of-a-bitch!"



I might of had a knife in my back pocket, might of pulled it out before he saw it
Thats all between the river and me
I might of had a gun but I didn't fire it, He might of tried to yell but I kept him quiet
Thats all between the river and me
Thats all between the river and me

Sheriff came knockin' on our front door, said they found his body by the reservoir
"Bottle in his shirt and liquor in his blood, must of fallen in the river and he never came up."

Might of been blood but they never saw it, just a little mud on the living room carpet
Thats all between the river and me
After what he done, well there ain't no wonder, can't remember how long I held him under
Thats all between the river and me
Thats all between the river and me
Yea, Thats all between the river and me
Thats all, Thats all.
