Riverman Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Betty came by on her way
Said she had a word to say
About things today
And fallen leaves.
Verse 2
Said she hadn't heard the news
Hadn't had the time to choose
A way to lose
But she believes.
Verse 3
Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the plan
For lilac time.
Verse 4
If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
And all night shows
In summertime.
Verse 5
Betty said she prayed today
For the sky to blow away
Or maybe stay
She wasn't sure.
Verse 6
For when she thought of summer rain
Calling for her mind again
She lost the pain
And stayed for more.
Verse 7
Going to see the river man
Going to tell him all I can
About the ban
On feeling free.
Verse 8
If he tells me all he knows
About the way his river flows
I don't suppose
It's meant for me.
Verse 9
Oh, how they come and go
Oh, how they come and go.
