lyrics

Bury me
By the river
May you never
be alone
I’ll send the fishes
For your wishes
Ask the wind
To walk you home

Bury me
Under moonlight
Let her white light
dry your tears
Let her phases
Sing your praises
& I’ll sing with her
From somewhere

You were the born believer
Oh and I was no God-fearing man
But I prayed
Ours was a good life
And I'm grateful for that.

Bury me
By the river
So when that day comes
And it's your time
Let them raise me
Temporarily
So they can lay
Your hand in mine.

Bury me
By the river
May you never
be alone
I’ll send the fishes
For your wishes
Ask the wind
To walk you home

about

Kev Corbett Halifax, Nova Scotia

“The man is an exceptional guitar player – for one thing – but also writes extremely clever, finessed, clockwork folk-pop songs whose singable surface belies a tremendous underlying sense of craft. It was really great to see him again.” – Jowi Taylor, Six String Nation

“Well-crafted, skillfully written songs, dazzling guitar playing. Son of a Rudderless Boat is a marvelous listen.” – Penguin Eggs
