lyrics

Hat low over your eyes, that big engine gunning --
I leaned into your window, I said baby why you running?
Come on now, come on now.

The river's calling like a town full of criers
talking about my white dress and my belly beneath rising.
Come on now, it’s our wedding night, wedding night.

Walk now beside me in the woods soft and lovely,
through the snow of the moonlight to the river deep and hungry.
Walk on down, walk on down.

Lay down beside me, say those pretty things you said,
wrap your arms around me and I’ll make our wedding bed.
Lay you down on our wedding night, wedding night.

Silver the starlight threaded through the sky so dark.
Silver my token buried deep inside your heart.
Take it now, take it now.

The vow you made me on another night so black
took me from this river and now I will give you back.
I'll give you now, give you now.

I’ll take your son to meet you down by the water.
He will never break a promise to another mother’s daughter.
This I vow on our wedding night, wedding night, wedding night.

The Harvey Girls Portland, Oregon

Melissa Rodenbeek and Hiram Lucke formed The Harvey Girls in August of 2003 in Lawrence, Kansas. The group combine the... melodies of bubblegum pop with experimentation in sound. Their music stands as a cross between Prince Paul's production work and the songs of the Shangri-Las. The couple moved to Portland, OR, in 2006 where they remain. Josh Millard joins the couple in their live shows. ... more
