Brian Setzer - "Haunted River" (lyrics) With that he cold New England wind Blowin' through my hair As my blood and whisky run through me as one didn't anybody hear her silent scream didn't anybody see his twisted grin All the neighbours wept and cried By her shallow grave and her momma prayed the lord her soul to take and her daddy stood alone he swore revenge and the haunted river flowed with blood again Late one night he crossed The river by himself The waters surged to reach for him through the night And the storm raged on and on on and on and on and on Everybody wondered what ever happened to The old reverend Brown who preaches Sunday mess and the sea turned calm and blue by the oceans door and the haunted river flowed with blood no more The Knife Feels Like Justice was released in 1986 by Brian Setzer on the EMI America record label. The album was not promoted well by the label, possibly because Setzer had progressed from playing rockabilly music to the more adult-oriented and more topical rock-roots sound, as several of his musical contemporaries had recently done like Bruce Springsteen, John Cougar Mellencamp, even Jon Bon Jovi. As a result it only peaked at number 45 on the Billboard US album chart.
