Deacon Blue – The River Is Wide lyrics

The river is wide
The river is wide
The river is as broad and white as satan's smile
The soul of man can never hide
The river is wide
The river is wide

The river is calm
The river is calm
The river's as safe as a babe asleep in a mamma's arms
The soul of man needs a soothing balm
The river is calm
The river is calm

The day is long
The day is long
The day's own light is faint and wan
I'm as weak as I am strong
The river is wide
The day is long
