  • Oh mighty river
    The Mississippi
    Turbulent waters
    Lull me to sleep

    Please take my hand
    I will go gently
    Your arms around me
    You'll be my man

    The leaves are changin'
    I cross this road
    To make my last walk
    In that warm sunshine

    Oh mighty river
    Oh Mississippi
    Oh all the troubles your banks have seen

    Carry these stories from north to south
    But round these parts you're westward bound

    The factories closin'
    Kids have grown so fast
    Lift up their woe please
    As you flow past

    Oh witness river
    You have seen it all
    Now do your waters
    Have room for one more

    Oh endless river
    As you transcend
    Please take me with you
    Far from this land
