Silently the River flows

Silently the River flows
it is there for you and me
it is on its way to dip
its feet down in the sea

Silently the River flows
wonder what it may see
while it is softly flowing by
as going on down to the sea

I bet there's stories it could say to us
of what it had seen and where it had been
a lifetime long of its traveling
and of countless things that it had seen

Thoughout the years of flowing slowly by
through changing of times and of scenery
It's wound its course way down through the land
and ended way down in the sea

Silently the River flows
it is there for you and me
it is on its way to dip
its feet down in the sea

Silently the River flows
wonder what it may see
while it is softly flowing by
as going on down to the sea

I bet there's stories it could say to us
of what it had seen and where it had been
a lifetime long of its journey
and of countless things it had seen

Thoughout the years of flowing slowly by
through changing of times and of scenery
It's wound its course through the landcape
and ended way down in the sea
