about

I stole this song out of a guitar I was reviewing, a Cole Clark Fat Lady 1. I couldn't help it. Sounded like a gorram pipe organ, and I just kept dropping the tuning down and turning the amp up . . . And then this little ditty started falling out of my fingers, and well, here it is. Tuning is CGDGBD if anybody cares.

lyrics

Stand by me and watch the river run
Let the final rays of the evening sun
Rest lightly on your shoulders as we watch it glide
Like silver reflecting the twilight sky tonight
Take my hand and stay silent for a while
We don’t need anymore than silence now
You understand like nobody else
You know me like I know myself

I got lost, went the wrong way
First time I tried to find you babe
Couldn’t get it right
Then I found you at the river side

Bridge was gone, didn’t know another route
Didn’t want to take the long way around
I knew the treacherous undertow
Is always waiting for fools who let go
And I am not a fool, unless it’s for love
I held my breath and wished myself luck
Muddy river washed me clean
I stumbled onto the shore again

I got lost, went the wrong way
First time I tried to find you babe
Couldn’t get it right
Then I found you at the river side

Stand by me and watch the river run
Laugh and say I’m crazy as they come
You understand like nobody else
I know you like I know myself
