Carefree River ©2010 Al Carmichael/Robert George

Carefree river
As I stand here and I watch your current flow
I can feel it pull me back to long ago
O you reflect my lonely years
Carefree river, can you taste my tears

Carefree river
Me and Jane made love beside you in the night
With her long hair washed in silver moonlight and the tide
Then she moved on like drifters do
Carefree river, she learned that from you


With ev’ry fork and ev’ry crooked bend
You keep rollin’ till you reach your end
and she is like the ocean now to me
all my dreams keep moving towards her memory


Carefree river
You will smooth a rough and jagged stone with time
I have tried to smooth my ragged life with wine
Please turn the tide of yesterday
Carefree river, let me sail away[/b]


With ev’ry fork and ev’ry crooked bend
You keep rollin’ till you reach your end
and she is like the ocean now to me
all my dreams keep rolling towards her memory


Carefree river
As I stand here and I watch your current flow
I can feel it pull me back to long ago
Please turn the tide of yesterday
Carefree river, let me sail away

Carefree river, let me sail away
Carefree river, let me sail away…

Yeah - well done. Sure wish you could pitch this to Randy Travis... sounds like it's right in his wheelhouse.
Cheers.

Thanks fun. :)

Cosmic, I appreciate the compliment. That was a peak in songwriting.
