  • Lyrics: he rushing of the river bend is Floating past the guardrails on this road I pull off too the shoulder The white caps on the water rumble Rustling the flowers It soothes my nerves I plant my feet down in the quiet Trying to be still The turbine in the distance Is cooling off her jets She has grown tired The water line is rising No longer is safe passage No one shouts “Mark Twain!” I’m losing ground & Falling short of buoyant Trying to be still I must have been asleep This must have been a dream My coffee spills Staining the upholstery Another 100 miles and we’ll arrive at some motel and rest our heads Dreaming of the river Trying to be still.
