River and the Road – Archie Fisher

from – River and the Road
Lyrics and music by Archie Fisher (From his CD “Windward Away”)

River, ramble as you will. This road’s a cruel, hard master
And I can’t slow the water’s flow, or travel any faster.

I know there’s a crossroads on this route I’m bound to travel
Straight ahead’s a long, smooth way, the other’s dirt and gravel.
And the hardest thing you’ll ever learn to bear as you grow older
Is to watch a dear friend walk away without a turn of shoulder.
I can be as hurt as you although I seldom show it
I’m so easy-going, that I’m gone before you know it.
