Eleven Mile Creek

lyrics

Carry me through this water
Cause I'm on my way down.
Every road left behind me
Lines of earth lead me now.

They're not giving up,
Trying to trace my steps,
With a bounty so high.

Should I hang me up
For the world I left
I'll just live till I die.

There's a peace every morning
When the blood light stains the peaks
Red and gold fill my vessel
and I'm back home at the creek.

But the sun comes up
And a distant cap
Scatters birds in the sky.

And it all floods back
Lies and traitor's cups
Not afraid now to die

Carry me through this water
Cause I'm on my way down.
Every road left behind me
Lines of earth lead me now.

When they finally gained
In the ember night
And my left shoulder torn.

Heard my mother's voice,
As the crows flew high,
Sing 'wild rover no more'.
