about

ABOUT THIS SONG
//Younger-James last ride after their fail in Northfield, Minnesota... The James escaped and the wounded Youngers with their friend Charlie get stuck in Minnesota swamps. They were chased for two weeks, and then captured by a local posse. That's how I imagine what'd happened.//

lyrics

The Big Woods swallowed us then spit us in the swamps
It seems old stories are carried away in the river's murky water
As if the silt could deliver the truth

Watonwan river
That's how they call it
Watonwan
He who saw everything

For sixteen days we turned in circles through marshes and swamps
We can't start a fire while the chase is on
We're wet, muddy, and cold.
Sore and wounded we cross the river, and hid in a bush

Watonwan river
That's how they call it
Watonwan
He who saw everything
Watonwan river
That's how they call it
Watonwan
Who has an eye on everything

The gunfire begins, Charlie drops dead first
I guess I'll die here 'cause my brother was seeking thrills
Watonwan, Watonwan, let's get it done
Watonwan, I hope you'll sweep my sins away
