SONG OF THE BOATMAN Lyrics – KATIE LEE

Last Night I lay in a restless bed,
A humdrum life pounding in my head.
When out of the night, came a mighty roar,
The river calling me back once more.

My heart knows what the river knows,
I gotta go where the river goes.
Restless river, wild and free,
The lonely ones are you and me.

Today I know your magic call,
Will lead me back to the canyon wall.
And the music in your rapids roar,
Make this boatman’s song from his soul outpour.

My heart knows what the river knows,
I gotta go where the river goes.
Restless river, wild and free,
The lonely ones are you and me.

Tonight as on your banks I sleep,

Like a woman soft, you will sigh and weep.
And I will dream of a sweet warm kiss,
And a moonlit stream and the love I miss.

My heart knows what the river knows,
I gotta go where the river goes.
Restless river, wild and free,
The lonely ones are you and me.

Someday before I’m old and gray,
I’ll find a woman who’ll go my way.
She’ll take the rapids strong with me,
And she’ll blend her voice in a song with me.

My heart knows what the river knows,
I gotta go where the river goes.
Restless river, wild and free,
The lonely ones are you and me.
