First time I saw you, on a rock in the sun
the river was running fast and high
Last time I saw you, you told me you were done
You told me your love had run dry

Well, rivers rise and fall, rains come and go
Someday I know you’ll come back again
I know that day is coming, but I also know
That someday doesn’t tell you when

Chorus: A river, a railway, and a road
Wind side by side across this valley floor
If ever you decide to come back to my door
Come by the river, the railway, or the road (2x)

Three in the morning, the whistle blows long
Cars like water flowing by
I live with the sound of people moving on
But I’ll stay here and wait till I die

Chorus (2x)
