Kingston Trio – Rolling River lyrics

Brownie Macintosh

Rollin' river, tell me, what do you see on your long, long journey from the mountains to the sea?
Do you sparkle in the sunshine? Does your rushing waters flow? Rollin' river take me with you when you go.

I have been travelin' hard for such a long time, searchin' for something, something to call mine.
I can see your waters flashing and it's almost like a song. I can listen to your music all night long.


If my body's feelin' restless like your hurried waters flow, when I'm longin' to go somewhere but I've got no where to go.
Pack my dreams up in my guitar case and sings these words I know, rollin' river take me with you when you go.

(Chorus 3 times)

Rollin' river take me with you when you go.
