When The River Moves On Lyrics

When The River Moves On - Willy Mason

Brother brother brother

Please forgive me

Your woman loves another

And I fear that I am he

We grew up in the same wood

And we fished the same pond

If ever our lines tangled

We'd cut them before dawn

Will you hold on to what is gone

Will you hold on when the river moves on

Mother mother mother

Sing a song to me

My friends have all gone traveling

And there's panic on TV

You know I am your baby

You've served my every need

But I've got this feeling lately

I've got to leave home to be free

Will you hold on to what is gone

Will you hold on when the river moves on

Father father father

Don't you ever hold defeat

Let it slip right through your fingers

When people spit it through their teeth

I was created in your likeness

And for that I'm blessed to be

But its time to separate my own dreams

For the ones you've passed me

Will you hold on to what is gone

Will you hold on when the river moves on

Will you hold on to what is gone

 

Will you hold on when the river moves on
