lyrics

I wanna lay you down in the green river bed
and leave you breathless by the water’s edge
give you back to the night you serve
lock your lips and calm my nerves
with the lamb of god you feel is true
but don’t believe what the good lord told you
but you won’t sleep alone
I’ll linger after you have left your bones

miss, do you need a ride
this ol’ truck driver’s lonely
and I can pay your price
and is there something wrong
if you tell me what’s the matter
I can clear your head

and in the river’s arms
I’ll pose you like the bible
spread upon my knee
and even though you’re scum
I’ll pray that I’m forgiven
and pray you’re doomed to roam

I wanna lay you down in the green river bed
and leave you breathless by the water’s edge
give you back to the night you serve
lock your lips and calm my nerves
with the lamb of god you feel is true
but don’t believe what the good lord told you
but you won’t sleep alone
I’ll linger after you have left your bones
