Lost my watch, watch and chain
But time's not lost
This time we walk together beside the slow black river

Water-walking over mud
You whisper something
Something good in my ear
So I stop so I can hear:

"Darling, I'm the one to blame
I threw your watch and chain
To where I don't know
Inside the tall grass meadow

You'll forget, forget in time
Remember this:
Your hand in mine forever
Beside the slow black river"

Lost my watch, watch and chain, to her today
But time it has no meaning
When her and me are walking

Darling, I'm the one to blame
I love you still
And timeless now forever
Together by the river
