the Loomers

Nobody Goes To The River

from Reeling Down A Road

NOBODY GOES TO THE RIVER

Sun goes black in summer sky
Rain cloud wrung out stone cold dry
Thunder knock down your back door
Nobody goes to the river to pray anymore

Locust swarming crops are dying
Twister forming dust is flying
Lamb lies down where lion roars
Nobody goes to the river to pray anymore

CHORUS
Nobody goes, nobody goes to the river
Nobody goes to the river to pray
God only knows we should all go today
But nobody goes, nobody goes to the river to pray

Mountain crumble to the sea
Ocean rise up angrily
Earthquake split your kitchen floor
Nobody goes to the river to pray anymore

CHORUS
Devil sleeping in your house
Angel weeping no way out
Heaven's seen this hell before
Nobody goes to the river to pray anymore

Yesterday become tomorrow – nobody goes
Rich man need to beg and borrow – nobody goes
Endless peace stop endless war – nobody goes
Nobody goes to the river to pray anymore

CHORUS
Let's all go, let's all go to the river
Let's all go to the river to pray
God only knows we should all go today
Let's all go, let's all go to the river to pray
