The day the river freezes
Is the day it wonґt seem fair
ҐCause theyґll come to get the River Lady
And I donґt think theyґll care

I know theyґll scrape her paint off
In their same old foolish ways
Now the people see the river
But the old ships gone away

Water turns cold and gets ta freezinґ
Before you even know it
The old girlґs easinґ
Away from her berth
Round by the point
And out of our view

Off in the mist
Her engineґs woundinґ
Like on the banks
That old hornґs soundinґ
A little goodbye
A little Iґll do what I must do

A little goodbye
A little Iґll do what I must do

A da da dum, dum, dum, da da da dum dum

I know I will remember
When I cannot hear that horn
That would roll up by the mountains
As she took us through the storm

I know theyґve got to take her
But I canґt say I approve
ҐCause sheґs won so many battles
That I hate to see her lose

Water turns cold and gets ta freezinґ
Before you even know it
The old girlґs easinґ
Away from her berth
Round by the point
And out of our view

A little goodbye
A little Iґll do, what I must do

The water turns cold
And gets to freezinґ
Before you even know it
The old girlґs easinґ
Away from her berth
ҐRound by the point
And out of our view

Off in the mist
Her engineґs boundinґ
Like on the banks
That old hornґs soundinґ
A little goodbye
A little Iґll do
What I must do

A little goodbye
A little Iґll do
What I must do

Dum da da da-dum...
