Seventeen, said goodbye, wave to me, don't you cry
I'm seventeen and I won't be gone too long
We're together now and we got to keep holdin' on

Two years passed to the day when they left me standin' and drove away
Two years passed, I been makin' it on my own
Poachin' the river dry and makin' rounds in the

Hangin' high in grand coulee damn, high above the river in god's hands
Hangin' high down in grand coulee damn
I took the higher pay 'cause it got me to the promised land

We found our swing out on the lake, we found our heaven in all the heartache
We found our swing out on a steel gray lake
And we'd take the gold when we finally got to langer see

Nine as one in cold and rain in blazin' sun and sickness and pain
Nine as one until I too am gone
We'll be together then, rowin' at the break of dawn

I would love to fingerpick and sing just like Blind Blake but as everyone knows, this is like becoming the Buddha.
