Lyrics

PALE RIVER

My baby drove me down to Pale River -
his family town down on the border
I don't like it there, but we've got news to deliver

It's strange to me it's still called the Pale River,
'cause now it's just so low, dark and dirty
But, oh, how they welcomed our news at the family dinner

It seems my baby wants to move down to Pale River
I worry so about our unborn daughter
It's so different there, but some ties you just can't sever

There's a fork in the river,
where it divides
So we must bridge her

So now the three of us live in Pale River,
her cousins fuss over our little angel
She's got all the love here that life can give her

There's a fork in the river,
where it divides
So we must bridge her

The same sun shines on the Pale River,
and all our shadows have no color
It was a good thing when we moved from where we were
