Track Name: Down by the River
Down by the river there she was
pinning the line and drying her clothes
from the hill I watched as my love stood alone
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well

The old church bells never did sound
as they did the day my love and I were bound
as they did the night my wife was not found
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well

Her golden hair, gone to the winds
the orange sun warmed her aching skin
bending low she gave the kettle to the river flow
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well

So here I am, thinking about that time
at the riverbed I stand beside no love of mine
yet I remember well, though the days pass me by
Fare thee well, oh honey, fare thee well
