lyrics

Light a candle by the riverside
Sail away in the moonlight
And the nightbird sings
The same old tune

Before you go sit with me
Two empty bottles in the breeze
Always humming
The same old tune

Rest your head
In my arm
Don’t say nothing at all
I guess they call this
The denouement
When you don’t know what’s right from wrong
But you can’t, can’t, can’t stand
The sweetest song

The river sings as she moves
The sweetest words that you ever knew
But she never stays
Where she ain’t meant to be

Watch the boats rumble by
Hear the engines alchemize
All the dead
Into that smoke in your eye

Rest your head
In my arm
Don’t say nothing at all
I guess they call this
The denouement
When you don’t know what’s right from wrong
But you can’t stand
The sweetest song
