lyrics

Joseph fell in the ocean, mama.
Quick come running down.
Tide came up and swallowed my brother,
Soon he’ll surely drown.

Mama said, oh sweet baby, don’t you worry,
He’s only gone for now.
I have faith he’ll find his courage,
And swim to higher ground.

We were playing by the water,
Throwing stones to sea
If they skip or get caught up,
In the salty breeze.
Now Joseph is riding the rip tides.

Come down brother, the sand is soft here,
Come and swim with me.
But the current came, and swept him under,
I fell to my knees.

Home is in the wind for my brother,
He got no need to decide,
Crow calls the murder meet again,
Now Joseph is riding the riptides.

We were playing by the water,
Throwing stones to sea(e)
If they skip or get caught up,
In the salty breeze.
Now Joseph is riding the rip tides.
