Lyrics

When the dam comes down
we'll be singing in the streets.
When the dam comes down
the mighty river will be released.

The water will flow muddy brown,
oh what a beautiful sound
when the dam comes down.

When the dam comes down
I'll be buying all the drinks.
And when the dam comes down
we'll be watching our troubles all sink.

Well change is finally comin' round,
oh what a beautiful sound
when the dam comes down.

The river's gonna wash your politics clean.
When the water flows your souls will be redeemed.

When the dam comes down
the Colorado will be reclaimed.
And when the dam comes down
that foul lake will finally be drained.

The water will flow muddy brown
all over the sacred ground.
Change is finally comin' round,
oh what a damn good sound
when the dam comes down.
