about

We all have memories from our home towns/regions that bring a deep sense of nostalgia. Some of these things may even sound strange to others, but for us, it is home. "Neches River" is Justin's nostalgia song about growing up in Southeast Texas.

lyrics

Chorus:
Oh, Neches River
Take me home, take me home
Oh, muddy waters
Baptize my soul
Take me home to your shores

Verse 1:
The click and the clack of the railroad track
Brings the memories back of the Santa Fe freight line racing by
Bring me back where the gold is black
with the glow from the refinery smoke stack in a sulfur sky

Pre-Chorus:
Where e'er I roam
Neches River bring me home

Chorus:
Oh, Neches River
Take me home, take me home
Oh, muddy waters
Baptize my soul
Take me home to your shores

Verse 2:
I long for the brown, tar-filled Gulf shores
And the downtown clock that runs no more from the hurricane

Pre-Chorus:
Where e'er I roam
Neches River bring me home

Chorus:
Oh, Neches River
Take me home, take me home
Oh, muddy waters
Baptize my soul
Take me home to your shores
