Justin Roth - Rise Lyrics

Justin Roth – Rise Lyrics

September 12th, 2am
Rain’s been coming down for days and the river’s risin’
Sirens call, gotta get out of town

A friend and his wife, his old guitar
They grabbed what they could, threw it in the car
The road was washing out up the canyon

It’s a state of mind to help those that you love
Seeing all that river ripped apart, push came to shove
Time’s running out…run

He said, “Some of the neighbors, stubborn as a mule
Gonna ride it out, up on the butte
but there’s no getting ’round, the highway’s gone”

Like nothing they’ve ever seen before, cars floating by
The river ran down main street, they didn’t get far
It took so much not to give up anymore

So they waited for the chinooks up on higher ground
at daybreak, airlifted over what’s left of the town

It feels so helpless on the outside looking in
Like watching a surgeon recklessly cutting in
To someone you love

Now the water’s fanning out across the flood plain
River’s changing course through farms and open range
This land may never ever be the same
But sister and brother, we will lift up one another
Whatever it takes to rise once again

[Lyrics to Rise by Justin Roth]
