Lyrics


LYRICS:

Two traveled off into thick of wood, tools in hand, the drought made us weak

You, thirty years, and I, still young, sat along the old dusty creek

Oh sweet sound of water rushing

Irrigation

Oh sweet sound of water flowing

Celebration

Oh sweet sound of life

Come on home, come on home, the water’s good and we’re doing fine

They gave us life, they gave us our lives to live

Oh sweet sound of water rushing, oh sweet sound of water flowing, oh sweet sound of life

Two traveled off but they’d not return, not again be seen, their tools floated home

Floated home
