|Lyrics:||Fare you well, my honey, fare you well my only true one.|
All the birds that were singing are
flown, except you alone.
Going to leave this brokedown palace,
On my hand and knees,
I will roll, roll, roll.
Make myself a bed in the waterside,
In my time, I will roll, roll
In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head.
Listen to the river
sing sweet songs, to rock my soul.
River going to take me, sing sweet and
sing me sweet and sleepy all the way back home.
It's a far gone lullaby, sung many
Mama, mama many worlds I've come since I first left home.
goin' home, by the riverside I will rest my bones,
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to
rock my soul.
Going to plant a weeping willow,
On the bank's green edge it will
grow, grow, grow.
Sing a lullaby beside the water,
Lovers come and go, the river roll,
Fare you well, fare you well, I love you more than words can
Listen to the river sing sweet songs, to rock my soul
