Same Ol River

Sam Bush


         I wish that I could be an Indian
         On a painted pony so fast 

No one could ever catch me
Or get caught up in my past
I�d ride across many rivers
Too many moons to tell the times
Then I�d tell all the young Warriors
Many moons ago this was mine, all mine!

 Same ol� river
 Same ol� Sea!

 Same ol� water  rushing over me

 Same ol� moon
 Same ol� sun!

 Same ol� race that we�ve always run
Same ol� race that we�ve always run

I wish that I could be a Pirate
I�d sail the ocean blue
Way before the big liners
Started sailing them too
I�d bury most of my treasures
So I would leave a big hole
And the only real sense of pleasure (that I�d get)
Is to sail free of my soul!!!!

(repeat Chorus)

I wish that I could be a Slave
It doesn�t matter what kind
I�d sing a song for fallen angels
Try and be free in my mind
Then when no one wasn�t lookin�
I�d drop my heartless plow
I�d find my own contemporarys
And I�d wipe the shame from their brow!!!!

(repeat chorus)

I wish that I could be an outlaw
Runnin� from the law sometimes
No vigilantly against the seasons
But I can�t help but read why
I�d always keep my revolver
Steady and fast at my side and
I�d rob a train bound for glory
Cuz I thought I needed a ride!!!!

(repeat chorus)

(add once more)
Same ol race that we�ve always run

So many things I ain�t never done

(Thanks to Joe Schirck for lyrics)
