The River -Jeff Weaver, Rarely Herd Music, BMI

 


As a child, I would sit down by the river

thoughts ran wild, dreamed of how far it would go

And in my mind, I would pilot a sternwheeler

We would roll together to the ocean shore


She would wait, lie in wait beneath the willows

We'd walk the river, hand in hand on summer nights

We fell in love, swore to live our lives together.

She broke her promise and my heart at the same time.


Days go by

I've got to break this rivers hold

Changed my life

you could say my love for the river

is gone.... long gone



I can't stay here, I can't stand another minute

dry up river, drown the loneliness you hide

Every ripple shows her memory deep within it

Every time I'm near the river I could cry



Days go by

I've got to break this rivers hold

Changed my life

you could say my love for the river

is gone.... long gone
