Capo On The First Fret.
                G (320003@1)                      CAs (x32010@1)I went out walking, on a fine summer day
                        DThrough (xx0232@1)hills and the valleys
                G (320003@1)   DI (xx0232@1)soon lost my way
                   G (320003@1)                          C (x32010@1)
Till I came to an old man, kneeling down by a stream
                  D (xx0232@1)                          GGazing (320003@1)in to the water, like he was lost in a dream
                    C (x32010@1)                      GIn (320003@1)his hand was a picture, he clung to for life
                          A (x02220@1)                       DAnd (xx0232@1)his eyes filled with tears, as he tried not to cry
                    C (x32010@1)  G (320003@1)                EmAs (022000@1)he looked to the heavens, he started to pray
                     C (x32010@1)D (xx0232@1)                     GIn (320003@1)the quiet country side, I could hear the man say


G (320003@1)                      CLife (x32010@1)is a river, I'll go with the flow
                   D (xx0232@1)                    G (320003@1)  DAnd (xx0232@1)where it will take me, the Lord only knows
                 G (320003@1)                          Cbut (x32010@1)I miss you sweetheart, your kindness and love
                G (320003@1)              D (xx0232@1)                GBut (320003@1)i Know one day, we'll sail away on God's ocean above

He said now young man, you're a stranger to me
Could I bother you kindly, for your company
Today I am thinking, of a time long ago
And I need to tell someone of a girl I love so
It's 42 years today, since Rose took my hand
and proudly I loved life, her husband, her man
till only last week son, God took her away
As I kissed her softly, these words she did say

Life is a River...

And with that the old man, sent me on my way
and said 'by the water I'll kneel for the day'
'I look at the river, starting out on it's life,
It's where I feel close to, my beautiful wife
