ON THE LEVEE

SLIPPING AWAY FROM MY MOTHER'S EYES
ACROSS THE RIVER ROAD TO OUR PARADISE
A WORLD OF TALL GRASS AN D BUTTERCUPS
THE MIGHTY MISSISSIPPI AND A DRIFTWOOD HUT
WE HELD HEAVEN IN OUR HANDS
THERE ON THE LEVEE

AND THAT RIVER RAN SO MIGHTY AND WISE
IT SEEMED TO KNOW ALL THE MYSTERIES OF LIFE
WE BEGAN TO FINALLY UNDERSTAND
WHEN YOU LOOKED IN MY EYES AND TOOK MY HAND
I SWEAR IT WAS THE PRO M I SED LAND
THERE ON THE LEVEE

ALWAYS ETERNALLY CARVED I NTO A CYPRESS TREE
THEN YOU FOLLOWED THAT RIVER
ON ITS WAY TO THE SEA
FADING MEMORIES IN THE TWILIGHT OF THESE YEARS
THAT WERE ONLY OURS TO KNOW
OUR HEARTS HAD COME SO CLOSE
THE DAY WHEN WE LET GO
THERE ON THE LEVEE

FADING MEMORIES IN THE TWILIGHT OF THESE YEARS
IT SEEMS I CAN 'T FORGET MY RIVER OF REGRET
THE LOVE THAT CAME AND WENT
THERE ON THE LEVEE

THAT LEVEE'S STLL STANDING SO STRONG AND TALL
BUT IT COULD NOT KEEP MY WANDERER HOME
I GUESS THAT I SHOULD KNOW BY NOW
THAT RIVER'S GONNA RUN ON ANYHOW
LIFE JUST COMES AND GOES
AND LOVE JUST NEVER KNOWS
WHEN TWO HEARTS WILL LET GO
THERE ON THE LEVEE
