Deschutes Rapids Blues

Deschutes rapids be so cruel
Drown the wise man, drown the fool
Sank my husband's fishing boat
Deschutes got him by the throat
Heavy hearts can never float.

Deschutes river freeze my bones
Fill my heart with broken stones
Drowned my son in cold white water
Deschutes river took my daughter
Flood came through the hills and caught her.

God He knows, if I could fly
With osprey wings and falcon's eye
You know I'd ease my sorrowed mind
Leave this Deschutes far behind
Deschutes river, cold and blind.
