Del Rio's Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
I've lived upon
The edge of chance
For twenty years or more
And this is what my friends all mean
Verse 2
By del rio's song.......oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Verse 3
When time gets slow, and rivers freeze
I think you'd know enough
Verse 4
To call in touch that outer frame
The inner gain, a sullen gulch
Which opens up on the way to blind man's bluff
Verse 5
A suburb now of river roads
Where quandary and sublime improve
The sight whose imagery
Is sometimes that of fear
Verse 6
I've lived upon
The edge of chance
For twenty years or more
And this is what my friends all mean
Verse 7
By del rio's song.......oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Verse 8
When time gets slow, and rivers freeze
I think you'd know enough
Verse 9
To shut the gates of walled town walls
And putting up some good rum punch
Forget the way to blind man's bluff
Verse 10
So packed with eyes
That glow like coals
And pointing towards the north
Oh my boat left new Orleans in 1829!
Verse 11
Hey! hey! hey! hey!
Verse 12
My destination is a secret
And the doctrine is soft
And just between the verse and me
It's a place where you can see
Lost, last and luminous
Scored to sky yet never found
Relics of jewels
And ant-track tools
A true ghost dance
Rehearsal ground
Verse 13
I've lived upon
The edge of chance
For twenty years or more
And this is what my friends all mean
Verse 14
I've lived upon
The edge of chance
For twenty years or more
And this is what my friends all mean
Verse 15
By del rio's song.......oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
Del rio's song..........oh, del rio
