Sung by Leah Song and Chloe Smith of Rising Appalachia. Music by Evan Fraser and Vir McCoy of The Dogon Lights


Water she gathers on solid ground
Water a memory yet to be found
Water she wanders through my bones
Water she dances, dances alone
Water Water

Must deliver till were on shore
day is dust we will thirst no more
Moving water fill my bowl full

Water she wanders through by bones
