The River – Vixy & Tony

So tell me a story, aren’t all stories true?
Tell me a story and I’ll tell it back to you
There’s always someone else there, up the river, up the river
Got to find my own way up the river

“The River,” a song about trying to make art when it feels like there’s someone upstream in the river of creativity (for example, Bob Dylan), catching all the good ideas before they get to you.  But in good filk fashion, Vixy and Tony point out the bright side – the fact that there are other people fishing means we can help each other.  Idea fish , unlike meat fish, don’t get used up, they grow.
