Melanie - Monongahela River lyrics

Some get put in prison
Others put themselves in one
Pittsburgh, you're the living proof

Some kill themselves living
Others get killed for trying, trying hard
They kill the ones who break the rule

Row me down, row me down
Monongahela River
Water down the city's gloom

Oh the lamplight is frozen
On windows and Sundays
So we never see the darkest room

But the heartfire is burning
And I keep praying one day
We will see the light of truth

Row me down, row me down
Monongahela River
Water down the city's gloom

Row your boat to the shore
Monongahela River
Isn't water anymore

Some get put in prison
Other put themselves in one
Pittsburgh, you're the living proof
