All The Way To The River
written by John Hiatt

Up late with her hollowed out eyes
All the way to the river
Trying every last trouble on for size
All the way to the river

Who knows what she's gonna do
All the way to the river
Not up to me, not up to you
All the way to the river

Fumbling for the keys to her car
All the way to the river
Empty bottles only go so far
All the way to the river

Straight down Broadway, three A.M.
All the way to the river
She's gone way past calling a friend
All the way to the river

CHORUS:
All the way to the river
Down to the bottom where the catfish moan
All the way to the river
Dirty Nashville
That's her home

Mama don't you worry 'bout me
Hmm
Scribbled down with a fleur-de-lis
Hmm
How's she gonna get through this night
Hmm
How's she ever gonna be alright Hmm

CHORUS

It takes cowardice and courage too
All the way to the river
To leave this town before you're through
All the way to the river

CHORUS

All the way to the river
That's her home
