Lyrics

Pacuare River
Words and music by Tony Turner

Verse 1
Driving rain fill this valley
Quench the land of a mighty thirst
Leaving trees in pools of teardrops
And hillsides set to burst
Waters rise like the days of Noah
Drown this lowland through and through
Driving boulders, braiding channels
Shape this valley, make it new

Chorus
Sky is frowning, current quickens
I can’t tell what’s ’round the bend
Water’s rising, channels shifting
Pacuare River changed again
Pacuare River changed again

Verse 2
I am drifting down this valley
I trust where it leads
Past virgin forests, tumbling side streams
Caught between these mountain peaks
Rapids calling in a whisper
That swells to a fearless roar
I paddle harder than my heartbeat
Bound for the peace of Dos Montanas gorge

Chorus
Sky is frowning, current quickens
I can’t tell what’s ’round the bend
Water’s rising, channels shifting
Pacuare River changed again
Pacuare River changed again

Solo
Pacuare River changed again
Pacuare River changed again
Changed again
Changed again
