Spinning wheels and fishing reels and cockeled shell perfume
Woolen shores and marketstores and flowers in full bloom
Understanding people who will never stop and stare
That is where I want to be
River, won’t you carry me back there?

River run, river flow
Take me where I long to go
There’s a place you will find
Not too far away
It’s quite near today, in my mind

Village full of cottages that no one ever planned
Only cotton tablecloths, but always made by hand
Cobbled stones and herring bones and sailboats gleaming white
That’s the shore I’m looking for
Hope we make it by the morning light

River run, river flow
Take me where I want to go
There’s a place you will find
Not too far away
It’s quite near today, in my mind

River run, river flow
Take me where I want to go
There’s a place you will find
Not too far away
It’s quite near today, in my mind

Riding on the riverboat
And moving pretty slow
But I know I’m gonna make it
‘Cause the good Lord told me so

River run, river flow
Take me where I want to go
There’s a place you will find
Not too far away
It’s quite near today, in my mind

River run, river flow
Take me where I want to go
There’s a place you will find
Not too far away
It’s quite near today, in my mind

Ooh… in my mind
Ooh… in my mind
