THE RIVER
(Steve Gillette and Charles John Quarto)

I've seen the paddlewheelers
Rollin' south on a summers day
I've seen lovers at the guardrails
With stars in their lemonade.

And I've heard the hoboes gather
Heard their banjos grace the glade
Heard them sing about the river
Called it the lazy man's parade.

Sing me that song about the river, green goin' away.
I always did feel like a drifter, about 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 goin' away,
You know I always did feel like a drifter,
'Bout this time of day.

Some things go on forever
The truth don't ever stray
The wind may brush the water
But the river holds her sway.
Sing me that song about the river, green, goin' away,
I always did feel like a drifter, 'bout this time of day.

Sing me that song about the river, green goin away.
You know I always did feel like a drifter
'Bout this time of day.
