I have seen the paddle wheelers
Rolling south on a summers day
Ive seen the lovers at the guardrails
With stars in their lemonade

And Ive heard the hobos gather
Heard their banjos brace the blade
Heard them sing about the river
Called it the lazy mans parade

Sing me that song about the river
Green going away
You know I always did feel like a drifter
At this time of day

Last night I stood by the highway
Pretended I was on my way
You know a hundred thousand headlights
Couldnt match the milky way

And when the moonlight touches the water
Surely something touches me
And I go reaching for the river
Like its reaching for the sea

Sing me that song about the river
Green going away
You know I always did feel like a drifter
At this time of day

Somethings go on forever
But truth dont ever stray
The wind may brush the water
But the river holds its way

Sing me that song about the river
Green going away
You know I always did feel like a drifter
At this time of day
