Lyrics

Thicker Than Blood

Drew James © 2006

 

I stand wounded at the edge of night

Cryin’ to the moon can’t you make it right

As the mad rain falls down and the whiskey wind it blows

 

If the devil calls out my name

I got nowhere to lay the blame

Sixty years of trouble is all I have to show

 

And my blues flow down like a river

Blues flow down like a river

Blues flow down like a river

Thicker than blood

 

A burdened mind makes it hard to stand

I live in the broken promised land

I’m never gonna make it up to the top of the hill

 

Can’t repent cause it’s too late

My last horse has left the gate

And it’s pulled up lame at the door of the bonemeal mill

 

(Chorus)

 

I’ve got one more thing to say

Before I slowly drift away

There may be things

That you think you would never do

 

That’s how I used to feel

Till my fate turned like a wheel

If it can happen to me it can happen to you

 

And your blues will flow like a river

Blues will flow like a river

Blues will flow like a river

Thicker than blood

 

(Repeat last chorus)
