Ride Across the River
Dire Straits Lyrics


I'm a soldier of freedom in the army of man
Oh, we are the chosen, we're the partisan (alright)
Well the cause it is noble and the cause it is just
We are ready to pay with our lives if we must

Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

And I'm a soldier of fortune, I'm a dog of war
And we don't give a damn who the killing is for
It's the same old story with a different name
Death or glory, it's the killing game

Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

Oh, nothing gonna stop them as the day follows the night
Right becomes wrong, the left becomes the right
And they sing as they march with their flags unfurled
Today in the mountains, tomorrow the world

Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side
Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

I'm a soldier of freedom in the army of man
We are the chosen, we're the partisan
The cause it is noble and the cause it is just
We are ready to pay with our lives if we must
Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side
I'm a soldier of fortune, I'm a dog of war
And we don't give a damn who the killing is for
It's the same old story with a different name
Death or glory, it's the killing game
Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side
Nothing gonna stop them as the day follows the night
Right becomes wrong, the left becomes the right
And they sing as they march with their flags unfurled
Today in the mountains, tomorrow the world
Gonna ride across the river deep and wide
Ride across the river to the other side

The percussion on this song is absolutely amazing!

The percussion and bass dance a beautiful dance like no other track I've ever heard. Totally amazing. Intertwined. Bliss.

I don't know if he's the greatest guitarist of all time, but he sure as hell is my favorite guitarist of all time. He also comes in second and third.

Flat World Watcher

That'd be Mike Oldfield in my opinion (1, 2 and 3)

Jake the mistake

That means your fourth favorite guitarist is really your second favorite 😉

Tim Pollock

In 1985, I was 14 years old, and on that summer afternoon, i was playing cards with my friend at his home... and suddently this Song came up on the radio. I Said: "Stop everything! What music is this?... Dire Straits?... I want this Record!!!"
