Schwa Lyrics

Riverman

Lyricist: John Mullins
Vocalist: John Mullins
In the springtime, when the water is high 
In the meantime watch it rolling on by 
I've spent a lifetime in this old river town 
Seen a thousand times, watched it crest and go down 
and I was a young man in 1944 
Seeking for everything that I could find and always wanting more 
A way to see and a mode to go to where I thought I should be 
Arrived and turned to the glow, slow and old but it knows and it sees 

Born a riverman 
with the heart of a young boy's soul 
Born a riverman 
ease along with the ebb and flow 
Born a riverman 
Let the current take control 
Born a riverman 
everything's growing old 

Now I'm an old man, I have laughed and I've cried 
Through all these years of tears and fear I just don't feel so wise 
Wasted time is still time served at an hour hands pace 
Saving it up to conserve, hours and days just to waste 

Born a riverman 
with the heart of a young boy's soul 
Born a riverman 
ease along with the ebb and flow 
Born a riverman 
Let the current take control 
Born a riverman 
everything's growing old  

Should I pass before the dawn bells chime go and fetch Sinclair 
Before the last of my sands expire I wish his company there 
I pray to wake up to the sun spirits laugh trumpets call 
Spirit's only just begun this river runs through us all 
Sinclair my old friend come and say your goodbyes 
We can stand one last time, by that old river side 

Born a riverman 
with the heart of a young boy's soul 
Born a riverman 
ease along with the ebb and flow 
Born a riverman 
I let the current take control 
Born a riverman 
everything's growing old
