lyrics

Thief River Falls

In the Thief River falls on a warm summers night
Suzy Price was walking home when she saw the flash of a light
Well, she looked onto the bridge and saw Billy’s body fall
She locked eyes with the Shadow who shot her dead against the wall

The papers came out the next morning, the headlines were splattered with blood
People screaming, and crying, and moaning, like any proud American should
The police they proclaimed it was Billy, The old drunk finally gone lost his mind
Shot Suzy for fun, blew his brains out with the gun, but they just got it all wrong one more time

Chorus:
Oh the Thief River Falls, the Thief River Falls
She turned in the night, and she saw it all
Oh the Thief River Falls, the Thief River Falls
It’s just one more shot dead in the Thief River Falls

Now the Shadow sits up in his zeitgeist, looking over his kingdoms below
He’s got the whole world doing his bidding, with nothing but money to show
And he leans back in his armchair, as a grin crosses over his face
Then he chuckles the sounds of power which rule the human race

Oh the Thief River Falls, the Thief River Falls
She turned in the night, and she saw it all
Oh the Thief River Falls, the Thief River Falls
It’s just one more shot dead in the Thief River Falls

Oh the Thief River Falls, the Thief River Falls
She turned in the night, and she saw it all
Oh the Thief River Falls, the Thief River Falls
No one will ever get out of the Thief River Falls
