From the recording Where The Amber Water Flows


My river’s full of whiskey
I’m the only one who knows
That was working until now
I’m countin’ down the days
I might have a couple more
No need to stop before I go
And there ain’t no rhyme or reason
Where the amber water flows

You don’t know I’ve hurt you
You’ve only seen me smile
But I’m shackled to a lie
I wish it could be different
But the truth just can’t be changed
I’m way past the point of no return
And there ain’t no love or comfort
Where the amber water flows


When you get home tomorrow
We’ll be here all alone
In the place we shared our love
But I won’t see your teardrops
Or hear you call my name
I stole the years, babe; I drank ’em gone
And there ain’t no fun or future
Where the amber water flows

When you find the empty bottles
I’m too weak to throw away
You will know my secret
I’m begging your forgiveness
Now that it’s come to this
I love you; goodbye
And there ain’t no judge or jury
Where the amber water flows

No, there ain’t no judge or jury
Where the amber water flows
