Water's Edge
(T. Cord)

Take me down to the water's edge
Show me what's on your mind
Take me down to the water's edge
You show me yours, I'll show you mine
And we'll come to stand the test of time

Little girl, tell me what's your name?
And I'll show you my heart
Little girl, tell me what's your name?
I don't ever wanna be apart
Take my hand and show me where to start

Take me down to the water's edge
Show me the way to the water's edge, yeah

And I swear I'm the only one
Who you're gonna need in this life
And I swear I'm the only one
Who needs you in this life
Come with me and be my guiding light

And give me a piece of your heart
Give me a piece of it
Give me a piece of it
Give me a piece of everything
Show me the way down to your heart
Come with me, and take me to the water's edge

Take me down to the water's edge
Show me the way to the water's edge, yeah
Take me down to the water's edge
Show me the way, take me to the water's edge
Track Name: House of the Rising Sun
House of the Rising Sun

Well, there is a house in New Orleans
They call "The Rising Sun"
And it's been the ruin of many young, poor boys
And God, I know I'm one

My mother was a tailor
She sewed my new blue jeans
My father was a gambling man
Down in New Orleans

Now, the only thing a gambler ever needs
Is a suitcase and a gun
And the only time that he is satisfied
Is when he's on the run

So one foot on the platform
The other foot is on the train
I'm going back to New Orleans
To wear that ball and chain

Oh mother, tell your children
Not to do what I have done
Not to spend your life in sinning misery
In the house of The Rising Sun

Well, now there is a house in New Orleans
They call "The Rising Sun"
And it's been the ruin of many young, poor boys
And God, I know I'm one
