Yeah, yeah, I'll be down by the river, yeah
Waiting for the good Lord to pass my way, oh yeah
I'll be down by the river, yeah
Singing songs of joy on this lovely day, oh yeah

Three singing birds told me
My sunrise is always there in the morning
Praying and blessing the day

I've heard about this little tale long time ago
But never had the faith to believe it was so, yeah
Now Mother Nature sent to me three little birds
Singing a song convincing me it was so

Now I'm on my way
If anyone come to see me this day
Tell them I'll be gone for the day

I'll be down by the river, yeah
Waiting for the good Lord to pass my way, oh yeah
I'll be down by the river, yeah
Singing songs of joy on this lovely day, oh yeah, oh

I've heard about this lil' tale long time ago
But never had the faith to believe in my soul, yeah, yeah
Now Mother Nature sent to me three little birds
Singing a song, convincin' me, it was so

Now I'm on my way
Anyone come to see me this day
Tell them I'll be gone for the day

I'll be down by the river, yeah
Waiting for the good Lord to pass my way, oh yeah
I'll be down by the river, yeah
Singing songs of joy on this lovely day, on this lovely day

Down by the river
Singing songs of joy
Oh, oh yeah
River
