  1. The River

From the recording In It Together

Lyrics

THE RIVER
I work on the river, makes my heart sing
To see all the wonders a river can bring
Its power, its mystery, its meandering heart
Grand estuary endings, from so small a start

I work on the river and sometimes at night
The stars are reflected mirrored by light
Heavenly idyll, beautiful scene
I wish I could share with you, all that I’ve seen

I work on the river, it’s been my earn in gold
Been a marriage of kind, to my heart and my soul

I work on the river, now there’s jobs to be done
I dredge out the litter and I filter the scum
Measure the nitrogen, being washed to the sea
And I check all the fish for signs of disease

I work on the river, it’s been my earn in gold
Been betrayed by Hades, all the treasure’s been sold

I work on the river, makes me wanna cry
Can’t stand to see something beautiful die
I pray that redemption, redemption will come
But till that day, I’ll just muster on

I work on the river, work on the river, work on the river
