River of Time

From It's About Time

Music and lyrics © 1992 Bob Zentz

 

 

There once lived a maid by the river of time  (C-C/B-Am-Am7)

In the land of no regret  (F-G-C-G)

And I was a boatman sailing down  (C-C/B-Am-Am7)
To the city of never forget  (F-G-C)

 

     And the wind came up and the storm came up  (Am-Em)

     And I brought my boat to the shore  (F-C-G)

     The shore of the river, the river of time  (C-C/B-Am-Am7)

     And I came to this maidenís door  (F-G-C)

 

2.  This maiden was lovely, this maiden was fair

This maiden was wise and free

I knew that she loved me by the way she cared

By the songs that her heart sang to me

 

     And I took her love and I gave her love

     And I guess that I always will

     Remember the maid by the river of time

     When the river of time stood still

 

3.  But there came a day when she turned to say

Iíd best be moviní on

For she bore the curse of the river of time

If I lingered her youth would be gone

 

     Her truth and her wisdom, her beauty too

     Would vanish away like a flame

     But if I sailed on down the river of time

     For me, they would always remain


4.  Now Iíve grown old sailiní that river of time

In the land of no regret

And I have loved many, and I have loved one

In the city of never forget

 

      But I remember the maid by the river of time

      And I wonder if she thinks of me

      Like islands that wait in the river of time

      Unchanged in our own memory

 

      Like islands that wait in the river of time

      Unchanged in our own memory
