 Verse: Going to leave this broke down palace
              F         Dm           Bb          F 
           On my hands and knees I will roll, roll, roll
           F                        Bb   F
           Make myself a bed by the waterside
                             Dm           Bb          F
           In my time, in my time, I will roll, roll, roll
        F         A                Bb               F      G
           In a bed, in a bed, by the waterside I will lay my head

 Chorus: Listen to the river sing sweet songs to rock my soul

 Verse: River going to take me sing me sweet and sleepy
           Sing me sweet and sleepy all the way back home
           It's a far gone lullaby sung many years ago
           Mama mama many worlds I've come since I first left home
           Going home going home 
        By the waterside I will rest my bones

 Chorus

 Verse: Going to plant a weepin' willow
           By the bank's green edge it will grow, grow, grow
           Sing a lullaby beside the water
           Love is comin' over the river roll, roll, roll

           F              A             Bb                   F
 B Chorus: Fare you well, fare you well I love you more than words
