Samantha Crain And The Midnight Shivers - The River lyrics
Hide your children, there's trouble around.
Preacher have you heard of the man around town.
Little girls playing in the river.
When he finds them the rest makes me shiver.
He holds them down
when their feet won't reach the ground
and he waits for the struggle to end
yes he waits for the struggle to end.
I'll go find him and save his soul
Lucifer's position is taking it's toll.
Just one prayer will end the madness.
A few words will end the sadness.
I'll search the town 'til I track him down.
and I pray I'll do the right thing
yes I pray I'll do the right thing.
So he finds the man and he shares with him
he feels guilty for what he's done.
I'm sorry you see for these awful deeds
now what must I do to purge them?
Oh my son you must be baptised
if you want to see the Christ.
And the preacher holds him down
when his feet won't reach the ground
and waits for judgement to come.
He waits for the Lord's will to be done.
