LIZ ANDERSON lyrics - If The Creek Don't Rise

LIZ ANDERSON
"If The Creek Don't Rise"

Been so lonesome, I wanna go home
Ain't been home in ever so long
Goin' back home where happiness lies
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise

Goin' back home and see my mama again
All of my family, all of my friends
Wrap myself in family ties
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise

If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise
Goin' back home where happiness lies
A thousand miles as the black crow flies
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise

Tired of chasin' fortune and fame
Tired of tryin' to make me a name
No one cares if I live or I die
No one cares 'cept my mama and I

This old world is selfish and cruel
Dog eat dog that's everyone's rule
Miss those things that money can't buy
So I'm goin' back home where the grass grows high
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise

If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise
Goin' back home where happiness lies
A thousand miles as the black crow flies
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise

Goin' back home and see my mama again
All of my family, all of my friends
Wrap myself in family ties
If the Lord is willing and the creek don't rise
