Slow Black River Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Lost my watch, watch and chain
But time's not lost
This time we walk together beside the slow black river
Verse 2
Water-walking over mud
You whisper something
Something good in my ear
So I stop so I can hear:
Verse 3
"Darling, I'm the one to blame
I threw your watch and chain
To where I don't know
Inside the tall grass meadow
Verse 4
You'll forget, forget in time
Remember this:
Your hand in mine forever
Beside the slow black river"
Verse 5
Lost my watch, watch and chain, to her today
But time it has no meaning
When her and me are walking
Verse 6
Darling, I'm the one to blame
I love you still
And timeless now forever
Together by the river
