lyrics

River’s Run Dry

When daddy went to jail
He left me standing here
Left me standing here on a cold hard grave
My dreams at night are dark
All stars have lost their spark
Got nothing left but a soul to save
Mary run, your man has fallen
Mary run, the river’s run dry

My lover meant no harm
He took me in his arms
Took me in and said we’d run far from here
I gave myself to him
Though I knew it was a sin
Deep in my bones I could feel no fear
Mary run, your man has fallen
Mary run, the river’s run dry

When daddy found us there
I was dreaming in his arms
Dreaming in his arms of the love we’d share
But before I could wake
My father filled with hate
He took that gun and shot my lover dead
Mary run, your man has fallen
Mary run, the river’s run dry
