LOST RIVER

THERE'S A LOST RIVER THAT FLOWS
IN A VALLEY WHERE NO ONE GOES
WHERE THE WILD WATER'S RUSH
RUMBLES DEEP IN A HUSH
GONE FAR FROM THERE NOW
LORD I'LL BE BACK SOMEHOW
TO WHERE THE LOST RIVER WINDS
IN THE SHADOW OF THE PINES

OH LOST RIVER NOW I'M COMING BACK
TO THE POTBELLIED STOVE
WHERE THE FIREWOOD'S ALL STACKED
OH QUEBEC GIRL GO WITH ME
AH MA BELLE MA FLEUR DE LIS
WHERE THE LOST RIVER
IN THE SHADOW OF THE PINES

NOW EVERYBODY KNOWS
WHERE THAT LOST RIVER FLOWS
IT'S SOME PLACE HE'S LOST
BEHIND BRIDGES THAT HE'S
WELL HE'D LIKE TO RETURN
BUT THE BRIDGES ARE ALL BURNED
AND HE'S MUCH TOO FAR DOWN
TO RETURN TO HIGHER GROUND

OH LOST RIVER FAR OVER THE RIDGE
NOW IS IT TOO LATE
FOR ME TO BUILD ME A NEW BRIDGE
TO THE BRIGHT GOLDEN TIME
WHEN HER LOVE WAS STILL MINE
AND THE WORLD WAS STILL WILD
LIKE THE HEART OF A CHILD
