The Blessing - Delta Rain lyrics

Thunder’s up and the real live wires are talking
Set me straight as the rain falls on New Orleans
Silver bells ring for treaties made by starlight
For Southern girls and their faces lit by fire-flies

And through the gutters there will be water
Running wilder than the sea and as the rain comes down
A thousand circles fade like you and me
They cal us lovers because our bony legs are tied
Once more to seed, but there ain’t nothing I won’t risk
To set this bird of love fly free

Shake your hair out and come and dance with me
We are lonely with no good need to be
Where the river grows wide to kiss the sea
Floods the delta and lovers’ eyes can see

Tonight is hot and there’s no wind from the ocean
I hear the drums as they bang across the water
Voodoo bells ring for treaties made by starlight
Forgotten gold and greed and fear at midnight

And through the gutters there will be water
Running wilder than the sea and as the rain comes down
A thousand circles fade like you and me
They call us lovers because our bony legs are tied
Once more to seed, but there ain’t nothing I won’t risk
To set this bird of love fly free

Shake your hair out and come and dance with me
We are lonely with no good need to be
Where the river grows wide to kiss the sea
Floods the delta and lovers’ eyes can see

Do you remember how we held each other tight in sorrow
Does it haunt you still?
And in a single raindrop I can see all our tomorrows
Baby, can’t you too?

Shake your hair out and come and dance with me
We are lonely with no good need to be
Where the river grows wide to kiss the sea
Floods the delta and lovers’ eyes can see
