Eleven Mile Creek - Single

lyrics

Carry me through this water
'cos 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 'til 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
scattered birds in the sky.

And it all floods back
lies and traitors cups.
Not afraid now to die.

Carry me through this water
'cos 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 mothers voice
as the crows flew high
sing "wild rover no more"
