I've been walking by the river
I've been walking down by the water
I've been walking down by the river

I've been feeling so sad and blue
I've been thinking, I've been thinking, I've been thinking
I've been thinking, I've been thinking, I've been thinking

There's so much suffering and it's too much confusion
Too much, too much confusion in the world

Take me back, take me back, take me back
Take me way back, take me way back, take me way back
Take me way back, take me way back, take me way back
Take me way back, take me way back
Take me way, way, way, way, way, way, way, way back

Help me un, help me understand
Take me, do you remember the time darlin'?
When everything made more sense in the world, yeah
Oh, I remember, I remember when life made more sense

Ah, take me back, take me back, take me back, take me back
Take me back, take me back, take me back, take me back

Take me back to when the world made more sense
Well, there's too much suffering and confusion
And I'm walking down by the river
Oh, let me understand religion

Way, way back, way back
When you walked in a green field in a green meadow
Down an avenue of trees
On a, on a golden summer and the sky was blue

You didn't have no worries, you didn't have no care
You were walking in a green field
In a meadow through the buttercups in the summer time
And you looked way out over, way out

Way out over the city and the water
And it feels so good and it feels so good
And you keep on walking

And the music on the radio and the music on the radio
Has so much soul, has so much soul
And you listen in the night time
While we're still and quiet

And you look out on the water
And the big ships and the big boats
Came on sailing by, by, by, by
And you felt so good and I felt so good
I felt I wanna blow my harmonica

Take me back there, take me way back there
Take me back, take me back, take me back
Take me way, way, way back, way back
To when, when I understood

When I understood the light, when I understood the light
In the golden afternoon, in the golden afternoon
In the golden afternoon, in the golden afternoon
In the golden afternoon when we sat and listened to sonny boy blow

In the golden afternoon when
We sat and let sonny boy blow, blow his harp

Take me back, take me back, take me back
Take me way, way, way, way, way, way, way back
Back when I, when I understood, when I understood, yeah

Oh, take me way back, when, when, when, when, when, when
When, when, when, when, when, when, when
I was walking down the, walking down the street and it didn't matter

'Cause everything felt, everything felt, everything felt
Everything felt, everything felt, everything felt, everything felt
Everything felt, everything felt, everything felt so right and so good

Everything felt so right and so good
Everything felt so right and so good
Everything felt so right and so good
Everything felt so right and so good
Everything felt so right and so good, so good

In the eternal now, in the eternal moment
In the eternal now, in the eternal moment, in the eternal now

Everything felt so good, so good, so good, so good, so good
And so right, so right, so right, just
So good, so right, so right, in the eternal

In the eternal moment, in the eternal moment
In the eternal moment, in the eternal moment

When you lived, when you lived, when you lived in the light
When you lived in the grace, in the grace, in grace
When you lived in the light, in the light, in the grace
And the blessing
