We came through the forrest
Of jealousy and greed
All our loved ones before us
Gave us everything we need

To cross that great river
Of every tear was ever cried
'till we find ourselves staring in God's golden eyes

In the desert love waited
Licking salt water from her skin
We could have been sedated
For all that we put in

We thought it was some devil
Who put the crying in goodbye
Till we found ourselves staring in
God's golden eyes
We found ourselves staring in God's golden eyes

And we did all we could do
We couldn't run from me and you
We did the best we could
No matter how hard we tried

Like babes we come whining
For some forgotten sin
Surprised to be shining
Just like diamonds in the wind

Every facet so perfect
And every cut the proper size
When we find ourselves staring in God's golden eyes
We find ourselves staring in God's golden eyes

The best Indiana singer songwriter since Hoagy Carmichael. Amazing lyricist and always entertaining music mix.

Oooh, yeah! We came through the forest Of jealousy and greed All our loved ones before us Gave us everything we need To cross that great river Of every tear was ever cried 'till we find ourselves staring in God's golden eyes
Yes he is. The song is a real treat for the ears. Thanks for uploading it!
Thanks for the add! This is one of the highlights of "Crossing Muddy Waters." For any John Hiatt fans who haven't picked up this album yet, it should be your next move. For those who aren't (yet) John Hiatt fans, this isn't his typical sound, but gives a sense of his blend of earthiness and soul - a true original.
