Lyrics To River Road

That little bridge off Crawdad creek

I fished off is all gone

In its place is a cul-de-sac

with houses built all wrong

And down the block there was a Bonnie-Lynn

with the best burger in town

but when I went there recently

McDonald’s was on the ground

I wish I had the money

when my folks sold that old house

but that was such a long, long time ago

we lived across the street from that tall oak tree I used to call Big Joe.

In a yellow house

on River Road.

In high school we were called the ‘party house’

with a basement dance floor.

Dad was always working late

so Momma manned the door.

We had girls downstairs, she didn’t care she’d yell

‘Hey, I’m coming down’

And then she’d wait for a few minutes

so nothing could be found.

I wish I had the money

when my folks sold that old house

but that was such a long, long time ago

we lived across the street from that tall oak tree I used to call Big Joe.

In a yellow house

on River Road.

When I was eighteen, Momma and Daddy put a ‘for sale’ sign

out on our front lawn.

Strangers came to see our house

and then the sign was gone.

Those last few days we lived with the boxes

were hard on everyone.

Us four kids cried, so did Daddy

but Momma she stayed strong. She said

‘We’ll always be a family no matter where we are.’

And then cried up all her tears as she loaded up the car

We drove for miles and miles

but we didn’t get far

I wish I had the money

when my folks sold that old house

but that was such a long, long time ago

we lived across the street from that tall oak tree I used to call Big Joe.

In a yellow house

on River Road.

A little yellow house

on River Road.
