The River (Reprise)

Come out to the river
it’s time we all were clean
take your sins and burdens
and put them in the stream
the wolves are standing on the bank
they’re waiting patiently
the blood red gowns we’re wearing
are making them hungry

Calm the ghosts of daughters
who still haunt their father’s dreams
take their pearls and lockets
and put them in the stream
your girls are waiting on the bank
they’re dancing merrily
the bright blue gowns they’re wearing
make them look so clean
