Sold Me Down The River

lyrics

Try walking backwards to see where you’ve been
Said that it’s wrong but you did it again
Here’s the part where blame comes in, my friend
Speak up if you see something ain’t right
Or smash all the mirrors and shut off the lights, it’s fine
I don’t mind

Sold me down the river
But luckily, I learned how to swim

Dust on the raindrops cobwebs in the sky
Hurry the quicksand is starting to dry
By the way, can I catch a ride?
The seeking is what you never could find
Digging through treasure while going blind
It’s a shame to see. A shame it wasn’t me
But I don’t mind

Sold me down the river
But luckily, I learned how to swim
Sold the stones and the silt and dirt
And then you found rock bottom
