lyrics

outside the dogs are barking
just a little while 'til we see some lightning
the cannons are ready and the river swells
and it's all spilling over like your daddy's beer belly

the breadth of the water and the strength of man
your father was a sailor your mother was the brass band
long hair caught in the engine
tilt your head back and taste of the medicine

outside the dogs are laughing
the screen door slams and the rafters are snapping
the cannons are ready but the coffee is thin
and it tastes like the oil put a hole in the wineskin

the cannons get a little louder
and all the while white waters surround her
the firelight illuminates the bed
and it's fine your eyes roll back into your head

and she comes from on high and says ooh do you recognize me?
i am your maker
