Biography

Walking through the muddy water thinking of days past. Music on our heart and problems on the mind. Thinking of the future cause life has no rewind. Still we shine. . through the thunderstorms or sleeping upon the cold floor. Music Conquers the night. but these problems. . these Problems swallow the mind but the hand drives the ink, the strings drive the dream and soon that muddy creek water is flowing crystal clean. . . . somebody press PLAY.

Lyrics

Riverside

Written By: Jack Prophet and The Common Folks Family

I'm a Tennesse boy catch me in my neck of the woods
The paycheck is chump change but me and the fellas
throwing in so we can all smoke good
There ain't really nothing to do
Shoot some pool, grab a forty, and forget about all my blues
So pop the top cause tonight we gonna let it ride
Even though I know I been. . .

Smoking, choking, and drinking in these backwoods for far too long
I think its time I need a peace of mind go down to the riverside
I think its time we go down to the riverside
And I aint telling no lies
Lets go down to the riverside

Different day ain't nothing changed just a couple more bills I gotta pay
I need to quick buying this weed and them drinks
Throw my money in the offering plate
Lord I ain't looking to catch me no blessings
Just if I die before I wake
You know my heart it was good but my mind it just wasn't right
Casue I been

Smoking, choking, and drinking in these backwoods for far too long
I think its time I need a peace of mind go down to the riverside
I think its time we go down to the riverside
And I aint telling no lies
Lets go down to the riverside

Take me on down I wanna go down to riverside
(Take me to the river Lord I need the river)
X4

Chorus to end
