Promised Land

from by The Frozen Ocean



heavily influenced by my love for irish and celtic music, this song was an experiment that I think turned out right and was a lot of fun to record.


For 30 some odd years
He's been riding this train
I know what I'm running from
What are you running from, my friend
Since 1869 we've been traveling this way
From Carolina, to California and back again

East of the River Jordan, there's a place they say
Where milk and honey flow
All the people there know your name
and the sun never goes away
the sun never goes away

Everywhere I've been, the story's always the same
Your just surviving,
praying to get through the end of the day
At night I look up at the stars, floating miles away
and dream of a river man
He's coming to take my soul away

East of the River Jordan,
There's a place I've heard
Where streets are made of gold
You never grow old or grey
The sun never goes away
the sun never goes away
