Big River

Album: A Different Kind of Truth (2012)
  • Wind at my back,
    Face in the sun.
    All my big ideas done.

    Big river
    Rollin’.

    Listen to a sea shell
    You can hear the sea.
    Listen to a beer glass
    That river belongs to me.

    Big river
    Rollin’.

    There’s a river runs here.
    When it rains we flood.
    Co-op City first three floors
    Of Charles River mud.

    Big river
    Rollin’.
    Oh, yeah!
    Big river
    Rollin’.
    Oh, yeah!

    Land’s edge,
    Where the East begins,
    The debris meets the sea
    When the tide comes in.

    Oh, look out!

    Look both ways now.

    Big river
    Rollin’.
    Oh, yeah!
    Big river
    Rollin’.
    Oh, yeah!

    Big river.
    Big river.
    Oh, yeah! Writer/s: ALEX VAN HALEN, DAVID LEE ROTH, EDWARD VAN HALEN, WOLFGANG VAN HALEN
