The River Knows Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Verse 1: 4 am. comes awful early, a
And i was dead on my feet.
but if you're gonna catch a biggest fish, you gotta lose a little sleep.
But i packed my gear and a couple beers, and headed for my favorite spot.
But i cursed my luck when i saw his truck right where i pulled off.
Was Hopin' to have the river to myself that day.

Chorus:
Cause' the river don't talk, the river don't care
where you've been, what you've done, or why it is you're standin' there.
It just rolls on by, whisperin' to your soul.
it's gonna be alright, the river just knows.

Verse 2: The way the sun bounced off the water,
i could hardly make him out.
But i could see he had a fish on, a big old rainbow trout.
The fight went on forever and as they headed down my way,
i saw his military hair cut, and the new scars on his face.
Right then i knew what brought him to this place.

(Chorus)

Bridge:
He held that fish down in the water, and he coaxed it back to life.
He said "I'll help you get your wind back, cause you helped me get mine."
And all i could think to say was "welcome home"
But i think that river said it best on its own.

(Chorus)
Cause' the river don't talk, the river don't care
where you've been, what you've done, or why it is you're standin' there.
It just rolls on by, whisperin' to your soul.
it's gonna be alright, the river just knows. (x2)
