Lyrics - Sweet River(Jarratt)
from CD Sweet River


Once long ago a story it was told,
How all the streets were paved with jewels and gold,
But now we know that it was all a lie,
Lay down your tools and bid wasted time goodbye!

CHORUS
So lets not grieve or in our sadness dwell
SWEET RIVER FLOW, SWEET RIVER FLOW
Just take our leave and bid a fond farewell,
SWEET RIVER FLOW, SWEET RIVER FLOW

The night is dark and in times hand we're caught,
Time goes so fast, itís later than we thought,
Lets not be mean with reason or with rhyme
Lets play this scene out for the final time..
CHORUS

The river flows and winds by field and fell,
Where it goes no mortal man can tell,
I loved you when you were a rushing rill,
Now slow and deep, but I do love you still...
CHORUS

A moments shelter from the icy wind and rain,
Then I must take that winding road again.
Ere we embrace,I ask you not to try
To hold me back when I must say goodbye.
CHORUS

Now we must part, no sadness or regret
The hours late but thereís time for one song yet,
But with the chiming of that final bell,
We'll take our leave and bid a fond farewell....
