Lyrics

In The Flood (2012)
Open tuning in the key of C)

Now you want me to lie
After holding on for so long and fully awake
I believe we could hold up the sky
I believe we could stand in the middle of the lake

Go back to sleep my baby
I will see you later
You can join me when the worst is over
I will see you later
Right now I’m in the flood

I peer into the dimly lit lodge and see the big man still asleep
Yellow wolf is wearing buffalo robes and the wedding is set for next week
Go back to sleep my baby
I will see you later
You can join me in the matrimonial morgue
I will see you later
Right now I’m in the flood

BRIDGE
We are lunatics with our minds too big for our heads, for our heads
It is better to shelf us off out of sight, safely wed
The Rocky Mountain News won’t cover our blues
We are wild women, without proper shoes

Tell me now Gertie is this what you want
Servitude and harsher times
How about a life of just friendship
How about you and I just decline

Go back to sleep my baby I will see you later
I will wake you when the worst is over
I will see you later

Go back to sleep my baby, in your dreams you can have a perfect wedding
You can wear a snowy white veild, while the corpses are in the field rotting

(Four lines of lead)

Go back to sleep my baby, the Cheyenne will be our only fathers
There will be an end to your suffering, and I will hold up the water
But right now I’m in the flood

Now you want me to lie
After holding on for so long and fully awake
I can believe we can hold up the sky
I believe we can stand in the middle of the lake
I believe we can stand in the middle of the lake
