Uriah Heep – The River lyrics

River, rising to hide
Across the midnight
Wanderin westward by daylight
Take us and lead us to tomorrow
As fast as you come and can flow

River, you're windin
An unending rhythm
The sooner keep
Movin to warn him
The spirit that keeps
Us from sinking
Guide us from going astray

Point us a way
To a shoreline ahead
Through the mist and the fog
Of this valley of death
Too many years we have
Walked in a sleep
Now were awaken and ready fo flee

River, we hitchhikers
Beggin for mercy
Survive us from yesterdays curses
Don't damn us
Before you receive us
Were needin your face
And your trust
