One More River To Cross

Lyrics: Josh Ritter
Music: Bob Weir, Josh Ritter, Josh Kaufman

A track from Bob Weir's new album Blue Mountain..

The Chacos, the Brazos, the wide Rio Grande
One more river to cross
The rogue running wild through the cottonwood stands
One more river to cross

I’ve tried to be good for most of my life
Never do wrong when I knew what was right
So when I cross over, my heart will be light
One more river to cross

I was twelve when I first crossed the Cumberland Gap
One more river to cross
And except for in memory, I never look back
One more river to cross

The snake in the sand, the Priest, the Payette
The Lolo, the Bravo, the San Bernadette
I’m tired but I still got one left in me yet
One more river to cross

My one true companion is carrying me
One more river to cross
And when I cross over he’ll go running free
One more river to cross

Out where the paints and the pintos run wild
Through endless green valleys, till one day I find
A river and crossing it back to my side
One more river to cross
A river and crossing it back to my side
One more river to cross

One more river to cross
One more river to cross
