river lady lyrics – roger whittaker

the day the river freezes
is the day it won´t seem fair
¥cause they´ll come to get the river lady
and i don´t think they´ll care

i know they´ll scr*pe her paint off
in their same old foolish ways
now the people see the river
but the old ships gone away

water turns cold and gets ta freezin´
before you even know it
the old girl´s easin´
away from her berth
round by the point
and out of our view

off in the mist
her engine´s woundin´
like on the banks
that old h*rn´s soundin´
a little goodbye
a little i´ll do what i must do

a little goodbye
a little i´ll do what i must do

a da da dum, dum, dum, da da da dum dum

i know i will remember
when i cannot hear that h*rn
that would roll up by the mountains
as she took us through the storm

i know they´ve got to take her
but i can´t say i approve
¥cause she´s won so many battles
that i hate to see her lose

water turns cold and gets ta freezin´
before you even know it
the old girl´s easin´
away from her berth
round by the point
and out of our view

a little goodbye
a little i´ll do, what i must do

the water turns cold
and gets to freezin´
before you even know it
the old girl´s easin´
away from her berth
¥round by the point
and out of our view

off in the mist
her engine´s boundin´
like on the banks
that old h*rn´s soundin´
a little goodbye
a little i´ll do
what i must do

a little goodbye
a little i´ll do
what i must do

dum da da da-dum…
