I have seen the paddle wheelers
Rolling south on a summers? day
I've seen the lovers at the guardrails
With stars in their lemonade
And I've heard the hobo?s gather
Heard their banjo?s brace the blade
Heard them sing about the river
Called it the lazy man?s parade
Sing me that song about the river
Green going away
You know I always did feel like a drifter
At this time of day
Last night I stood by the highway
Pretended I was on my way
You know a hundred thousand headlights
Couldn't match the milky way
And when the moonlight touches the water
Surely something touches me
And I go reaching for the river
Like it?s reaching for the sea
Sing me that song about the river
Green going away
You know I always did feel like a drifter
At this time of day
Somethings go on forever
But truth don't ever stray
The wind may brush the water
But the river holds its way
Sing me that song about the river
Green going away
You know I always did feel like a drifter
At this time of day
