Waters of Mark Twain

 

VERSE 1

I never realized we’re all orphans in the end

Till I stood by my father’s bed in Hannibal

Time will shake it loose, all your finery and friends

If you got someone to love you it’s a miracle

Sit and watch these muddy waters roll

I wish I could make it right; I wish I could run away

Lord there’s such a longing in my soul

Take me past New Orleans on the waters of Mark Twain

Where tears drop forgiveness on old Missouri rain

It’s funny how I’m the child that wound up coming home

For a sadder parting by and by

Oh I wish I’d really known him like I wish that I was known

There’s a better home awaiting in the sky
