    Lyrics

    Fire on the asphalt L.A. freeway
    Santa Anna windstorm come blow me away
    'Cause this rear view mirror could use some adjustment
    Some other reflection, some other place

    Oh Cumberland, I'm a faithful son
    No matter where I go I hear you calling me
    The Mississippi's wide long, St. Paul to New Orleans
    But my heart's resting on your banks in Tennessee

    Lazy ol' river not a lick of ambition
    Get to Kentucky then you roll on home
    If you were a highway you wouldn't go nowhere
    And I wouldn't be lost and all alone

    Oh Cumberland, I'm a faithful son
    No matter where I go I hear you calling me
    The Mississippi's wide long, St. Paul to New Orleans
    But my heart's resting on your banks in Tennessee

    There's a stolen river in the San Fernando
    Down in the valley in the shadow of greed
    But I have a memory knee deep in salvation
    That old muddy water that once washed me clean

    Oh Cumberland, I'm a faithful son
    No matter where I go I hear you calling me
    The Mississippi's wide long, St. Paul to New Orleans
    But my heart's resting on your banks in Tennessee
    Oh Cumberland, oh Cumberland
