Sweet Jesus Lyrics - Kenneth Cope

Release information
Release Date: 2002
length: 5:01
There is a river running though this town
It carried the water
There isn't any way to slow it down
Or make it stop
I was a baby when the big bridge fell
So I don't remember
But I have listened to the stories well
And so I know
They were falling to the surface
They were calling to their God
And there cry was

CHORUS
Sweet Jesus, please won't you catch us, save us
Sweet Jesus, please won't you hear us crying

Fishing for luck beneath the bridge that day
A man in his eighties
He saw it happen and began to pray
As he dove in
He found a mother and a baby boy
They both wouldn't make it
The mama handed him her only joy
He took the child
Then he was swimming like he was twenty
He made shoreline then he died
And his thoughts were

REPEAT CHORUS

He was crying

I miss my mother and the brave old man
Though I never knew them
There are the soul inside the man I am
I bear their dreams
And I am waling in their footsteps
I am talking to their God
Am my cry is

REPEAT CHORUS

We're all crying

There is a river running through this town
It carries the water
There isn't any way to slow it down
Or make it stop
