The River


Up and down the river bank
Fishermen travel to-and-fro
Hoping to catch the big one
So they'll have one to show

The river boats travel
Up and down that stream
Moving their way with such grace
With their heads full of steam

The waves keep splashing
There up on each shore
Beating and cutting its way on in
As each wave is cutting more

Oh, if that river could tell tales
There would be some hard to believe
From Indians, to Pirates, to modern days
There has been blood spilled over greed

Then there are those who lost lives
Just do to a simple accident
And there are plenty others there
Because, someones rage turned Hell bent

So if you by the river
Look at it very very close
And if you look close enough
You might see someones ghost
