Lyrics

Flowing West
(c) 2011 Kristina Stykos/BMI/Horse Thief Publishing

I got wings to fly
Baby watch me go
I got nothing left to walk on
Nothing left to show

Can’t quite open up my eyes
I’m still lying in my clothes
An empty bottle on the floor
I’ll figure it out, and go

And the wind blows my dress
Like a sweet caress you’re on my mind
For my heart there is no rest
Moving down the Chateauguay flowing west

River always there for me
Yeah, like a trusted friend
And you - the love I always thought
Was just around the bend

Crossed the ridge at first daylight
She’s shining through the trees
Everything I’ve lost and then
Looked for in my dreams

And the wind blows my dress
Like a sweet caress you’re on my mind
For my heart there is no rest
Moving down the Chateauguay flowing west

Never made a clean escape
Or wiped you from my mind
Never made the border no
Or got north of the line

If I could just find that road
And finally reach the west
Maybe I could wash it out of me
And get my soul some rest

And the wind blows my dress
Like a sweet caress you’re on my mind
For my heart there is no rest
Moving down the Chateauguay flowing west
