Trouble River Lyrics

by Bruce Springsteen

Well, the river runs through this valley
Combing deep and black [? ]
Coming like a tombstone's
Shadows across my back

Trouble river
Six foot high and risin'
Trouble river
I can't keep from cryin'

Woke up last night a'shakin'
Shakin' from a dream
All I seen was smilin' faces
Starin' back at me

Trouble river
Six foot high and risin'
Trouble river
I can't keep from cryin'

Snakes crawling in the house
I'm stuck in muddy ground
Tonight I'm gonna shed this skin
Cause water's risin' and I goin' down to
Trouble river
Six foot high and risin'
Trouble river
I can't keep from cryin'
