I wish that I cold be an Indian
On a painted pony so fast
No one could ever catch me
I get caught up in my past
I'd ride across many rivers
Too many moons to tell the times
Then Id tell all the young Warriors
Many moons ago this was mine, all mine!

Same ol' river
Same ol' sea!
Same ol' water rushing over me
Same ol' moon
Same ol' sun!
Same ol' race that we've always run
Same ol' race that we've always run

I wish that I could be a Pirate
I'd sail the ocean blue
Way before the big liners
Started sailing them too
I'd bury most of my treasures
So I would leave a big hole
And the only real sense of pleasure (That I'd get)
Is to sail free of my soul

Same ol' river
Same ol' sea!
Same ol' water rushing over me
Same ol' moon
Same ol' sun!
Same ol' race that we've always run
Same ol' race that we've always run

I wish that I could be a Slave
It doesn't matter what kind
I'd sing a song for fallen angels
Try and be free in my mind
Then when no one wasn't looking
I'd drop my heartless plow
I'd find my own contemporary's
And Id wipe the shame from their brow!!!!

Same ol' river
Same ol' sea!
Same ol' water rushing over me
Same ol' moon
Same ol' sun!
Same ol' race that we've always run
Same ol' race that we've always run

I wish that I could be an outlaw
Runnin' from the law sometimes
No vigilantly against the seasons
But I cant help but read why
I'd always keep my revolver
Steady and fast at my side and
I'd rob a train bound for glory
'Cause I thought I needed a ride

Same ol' river
Same ol' sea!
Same ol' water rushing over me
Same ol' moon
Same ol' sun!
Same ol' race that we've always run
Same ol' race that we've always run

Same ol' race that we've always run

So many things I ain't never done
