From the recording Pennies in Hand
Let’s go down to the river. Let’s go down to the river, my friend, and let’s sit under the bridge, collect who we’ve been. Sometimes I wish I could take my heart out and set it aside, throw it to this river wide, and you could do the same, make it easy to walk away. There is nothing like freedom, and I love the taste of it, but I also love the taste of its absence. Let’s go down to the river. Let’s go back to the river, my friend, and I’ll listen as you tell me how it works out in the end. Well know that I love you and I loved everyone, and I hope to see you when it’s all said and done. And there’ll be peace like the river, and if I’m lucky, love like the train. My heart has never tried so hard to stop pumping love and stop pumping blood. Let’s go down to the river.
