Green River, I've come back to you
Do you remember me
Do you remember Mommy with the soft blue eyes?
I left you with a lot of dreams
None of them came true
What I wanted was here waiting all the time

Green River, did she come back every evening
Like the neighbors said she did so faithfully
Green River, has she gone away forever?
She just disappeared one day
As she gave up on me

Green River, if you see her
Won't you tell her I've returned?
All I brought her is myself and this little ring
Please tell her that I love her
And my lesson I have learned
Green River, tell her please come back to me
