Bitter Branch
I've seen you roll
I've seen you die
I've seen you washed out
I've seen you dry

I took a drink
When our water was gone
I felt your kiss
When we knew it was wrong

But you're never at a loss for words
And the ones you say you don't take back

Bitter Branch

I've seen your kind
Bear away wood
'til Southern veins
Run red with mud

When you flood
You're clear as gin
Your heart's too cold
To wash away sin

You're never at a loss for words
And the ones you say you don't take back

Bitter Branch

You've got a soul
That only means well
Don't know the truth
In the stories you tell

Pillar to post
Just send it down the line
'Cause the work ain't done
While the sun still shines

You're never at a loss for words
And the ones you say you don't take back
