Come Sit By The River Recorded by Bluegrass Martins Written by Charles Roehrig
C G7 C I can see that you're ready to go home F C There's some TV show that you're missing F C But you know how an old man loves to talk G7 C And he needs someone who will listen
F C Come and sit by the river with me for a while F G7 And I'll tell you a story that's true C F Dm Of when I was a boy playing here on the shore C G7 C And the grass was so green and the water so blue
G7 C Well our house stood right over there F C Of course they took it down for the highway F C I can see my momma's tears we'd been there for twenty years G7 C And you know we would still if I had my way
G7 C In those days you could often find me here F C With the rest of the neighborhood children F C There was so much we could do there was fishing swimming too G7 C There was always some raft that we were building
G7 C Many years I have watched this river flow F C Rolling down from the hills to the ocean F C I have seen the waters high almost fearsome rushing by G7 C I have seen it nearly dry and without motion
G7 C Now at last you can see what it has come to F C So we've prospered but poisoned the waters F C Now the tunes have all been played and the piper must be paid G7 C Not by us but our sons and daughters
F Dm Of when I was a boy playing here on the shore C G7 C And the grass was so green and the water so blue
