Song Of The Old Water Wheel
Recorded by Slim Whitman
Written by Buddy Starcher
[3/4 time]

By the valley road the lilacs are growin'
D7 G
Around the mill with an old water wheel
In his dusty coat the river sits dreamin'
D7 G
Of his true love the pretty Lucille

D7 A7
The old water wheel keeps turning and turning
It seems to speak of the kisses it sees
Of the soft summer nights when the hearts were alive
A7 D7
Making love to the sound of the old water wheel


G C D7 G C D7 G

D7 G C
In her eyes of blue to heaven lay dreaming
D7 G
And her hair was brown as the meadow lark's wings
Every smile revealed white pearls empty dreamin'
D7 G
And nature made her lips just to sing

D7 A7
But fate was unkind she sleeps neath the lilacs
The busy world keeps moving along
But the old river seems to be lost in his dreams
A7 D7
While the water wheel turns gently singin' their song
A7 D7
Lost in the song of the old water wheel
A7 D7 A7 D7
The old water wheel the old water wheel
