Tom johnston

Outside of town there is a river
And it calls to me
Like a song in the night

A whole lotta people make way to that river
Cause it keeps on rollin' on
Like everything's alright

That old river just keeps rollin' on
Even when all love is just a song
And like that river we just keep on rollin' along

Everybody needs somethin' they can count on everyday
Like a clock that keeps the time for ya
It never drifts away

You and me you see are different but the same
And though we may not understand each other
We got to try just the same

Now all these thoughts don't mean nothin'
If we don't live like we say
And I for one need love and direction
To help me find my way
