nuff said

I need to say more, which against the rules of 'nuff said' yet feel i must.

T-Bone Burnette is the first version i heard and he wrote it. It has haunted my mind for years.

I came across this version by Sam Phillips and she broke my heart. Her clip turns loud and noisy at the 3 minute mark. I advise shutting off the sound.

There's a river of love that runs through all time

But there's a river of grief that floods through our lives

It starts when a heart is broken into

By the thief of belief in anything that's true

But there's a river of love that runs through all time

There's a river of love that runs through all time

But there's a river of tears that flows through our eyes

We fight through the night for freedom as it fades

Into a jail where we fail every time we make a break

But there's a river of love that runs through all time

I had to run before I knew how to crawl

The first step was hard

But I have had trouble with them all

But now the night grows darker

And the day grows dim

Cause I know I never will see you again

And I almost made you happy

There's a river of love that runs through all time

But there's a river of fire that burns with no light

The flame is the pain of dreams gone up in smoke

From the lies we deny and breathe until we choke

There's a river of love that runs through all time

  1. Another thing we agree on: T Bone who produced a lot of Sam Phillips records (are they still married--I lose track of celebrity relationships) and the music of Sam--I adore her.

  2. T Bone is the producer of the moment... Oh Brother Where Art Thou, Allison and Robt Plant's new release, just to name two.
