Long River Lyrics

Where the long river flows it flows by my window
Where the tall timber grows, it grows 'round my door
Where the mountain meets the sky and the white clouds fly
Where the long river flows by my window

There's a tiny bird that calls and he calls 'round my window
There's a lonely tear that falls, and it falls 'round my door
But when the sun is high there's no time to cry
Where the long river flows by my window

Now if only you could see the closin' of the day
If only you could be where the dawn breaks away
By the white cascade, oh down in the glade
Where the long river flows by my window

Well when this land was made, it was made full of wonders
But one woman's love I can't understand
And I'd give it all to you if her love were true
Where the long river flows by my window
Where the long river flows by my window
