Lyrics

We went down to the Red River
Where it’s deep and wide
There my life changed forever
When my lover died

No one knows why he took that leap
It’s one secret the gorge will always keep

They went down to the Red River
With kerosene and bloodhounds
Seems like they searched forever
But nothing was ever found

No one knows why he took that leap
It’s one secret the gorge will always keep

Oh, such a tragedy
For love to end this way
A haunting memory
As I watched him fall, fall, fall away

Break

I went down to the Red River
Now I have blood on my hands
Left him there in the gorge forever
One push bad romance

No one knows why he took that leap
It’s one secret the gorge will always keep
Yes, the gorge will always keep
This secret safe…for me
