“Allegheny River (Dire Requisite)”

Eddie, I’m sitting on the fence
watching my life unfold
did Warhol ever talk to God?
his paintings did, I’m told

Eddie, I miss Morning Star Beer
we’d tie one on and go to work
we should try to make a movie
of blood and bombs and sin and dirt

CHORUS: The Allegheny River / will take me to the sea / the truth lies hidden but still we move / river set me free

we’ll add a priest and dogs and cats
we’ll cast Lenore as sweet and kind
if you can’t see it with your eyes
you can feel it with your mind

Eddie, I’m thinking ’bout Lenore
of no last name and pearl, black eyes
you say she hung me out to dry
I say she’s beautiful and wise


Eddie, I’m tearing down this fence
let’s go out and hear the band
we can film along the way
and I will be a better man
