The Voice In The Cottonwoods

I walked in the water
to baptize myself thither
the river rushed past
yeah she ran away
I asked what's your hurry?
she said do not tarry
come home child come home

I stared in the water
at the face of another
the other stared back
for an eternity
I waved to the other
the other waved back
so long child, so long
