Roll On Through

from by Radoslav Lorkovic



This song hit me so hard driving out of Bellevue Iowa. I had to pull over and write it. Bellevue is a very magical and grounding place for me. All (almost) my exes come from Bellevue...(actually Andrew). Summer '87


I'm walking down on main street
of a tiny little river town
the moon is slowly rising
and the sun ain't even all the way down
the people walk by slowly
as the streetlights, they glow 'til dawn
took a couple hours to get here
might be forever before I'm gone


The Mississippi rolls through my mind
and it rolls over my shoes
rolls through my heart
rolls on through to you
it rolls all night long
gonna roll 'til the morning come
it's gonna roll
we're gonna roll right with it

The trains roll right on through
you can hear the whistle down the line
tracks run right down mainstreet
you can hear the wheels creak and grind
the water stays still and cool
as the big boats pass on through
slip through the locks in order
on their way down to the deep bayou


They tell me I gotta keep movin'
No matter what I feel inside
The world's out there waiting
better not get too far behind
ride them four lane highways
make wure you're right on time
ain't nothin' in world gonna stop
this water movin down the line
