THE RIVER

I Come from down in the valley
Where mister when you're young
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
Me and Mary we met in highschool
When she was just seventeen
We'd ride out of this valley
Down to where the fields were green
We'd go down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oh down to the river we'd ride

Then I got Mary pregnant
And man that was all she wrote
And for my nineteenth bithday 1 got a union card and a
wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse
And the judge put il all to rest
No wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle
No flowers, no wedding dress

That night we went down to the river
And into the river we'd dive
Oh down to the river we did ride

I got a job working construction for the Johnstown company
But lately there ain't been much work
On account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
Well mister they vanished right into the air
Now I J'ust act like I don't remember
And Mary acts like she don't care

But I remember us riding in my brother's car
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
And pull lier close just to feel each breath she'd take
Now thoses memorles come back to haunt me
They haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true,
Or is it something worse
That sends me down to the river
ThoLi-h 1 know the river is dry
That sends me down to the river, my baby and I
Oh down to the river we ride
