Rivers of My Fathers -- Gil Scott-Heron

Looking for a way
Out of this confusion
Looking for a sign --
Carry me home.
Let me lay down by a stream
and let me be
Miles from everything...
Rivers of my fathers
Could you carry me home,
Carry me home...

Rubber soles against the concrete
&
The concrete is my smile...
Got to change my way of livin'
Got to change my style.
Let me lay down by a stream
Miles from everything...
Rivers of my fathers,
Could you carry me home
Carry me home.

Looking for a way,
Got to find a way
Out of this confusion..
Looking for a sign
Point my way home..
Let me lay down by a stream somewhere
Miles from everything
&
Rivers of my fathers,
Rivers of my fathers,
Carry me home...
Carry me home.
Carry me home,
Carry me home,
Carry me home.......

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Against all odds, we found a way out of the confusion.

More than thirty years after this song was written, we finally found our way home.

And, at last, at long, long last, it will truly be home - for everyone who lives here.
