Lyrics

River East River West
Ethan Jones once shot a man for stealing cattle on his land
It brought a whole lot of trouble to his door
Helen Amy was his wife, they prayed by candlelight
But the good Lord deserted them both

Bridge
Weren’t you the one that stopped me crying?
Weren’t you the one who let me go?
Was I the one in denial?
And the one to say let it go? So I let it go

Chorus 1
And I swear I saw you crying
And I swear I saw your pain
By the banks of the river I saw you dying
Blood on my hands in the rain

River East River West
Ethan rode the trail he thought was best
Revenge though the Nixon brothers was the answer
Took the law into their hands
Texas rangers had other plans but they got there far too late to save them

BRIDGE / Chorus 1 repeat plus …
And I swear I begged for mercy
And I swear I took the blame
By the banks of the river I left you dying
Blood on my hands in the rain
