  • Black river
    Black river
    Black river

    The story?s still unfolding and like the river rolling
    It's always moving like a tide
    Seemingly unchanging
    But of course nothing stays the same, you'll see

    Black river
    Black river
    Black river

    And if I scratch the surface and try to look to learn it
    Oh, what fantastic worlds I'll find
    Stay with me forever
    Buried deep inside my mind, you'll see

    Sha, la, la, la, la
    I'm casting out my line
    Although it?s floating by
    Who knows what I'll find, we'll see

    It's early in the morning, I watched a raindrop falling
    So slim and tender from a leaf
    It stays with me forever
    Buried deep inside of me, you'll see

    Black river
    Black river
    Black river

    Black river
    Black river
    Black river
    You drifter
