Life Is Like A River Doc Watson
1 Life is like a river that runs to eternity
And all must ride that river, honey, just like you or me
It's sometimes rough and muddy with rapids along the way
For some, the trip is shorter, but all must have their day.
Chorus There's no dark and rolling tide between you and me
Lots of love and happiness far as the eye can see.
2 There's a dark and muddy current that can sweep your boat from sight
If you pass that point of no return, there's a dark and end-less night
There's also a mighty boatman and he's out there every day
Just put your life in His hands and you're safely on your way.
3 We've rode this raging river when the banks were cavin' in
When the storms have almost beatin' us, we've always tried again
Let's keep the faith together, encouraging our friends
Until we reach that crystal sea of life that never ends.
