A RIVER FOR HIM Emmylou Harris I crossed on the river There'll be no returning I crossed all the bridges I watched them all burning And now I'm a stranger To a strange land I'm driven Where all is forgotten And nothing's forgiven But I cried a river A river for him That's deeper and wider Than I'll ever swim The heart it will harden The sorrow will dim But I cried a river A river for him I think of him now On the road I am taking And wonder how long His heart will be breaking But he'll never hear when The teardrops are falling Or the sound of my voice And the name I'm calling But I cried a river A river for him That's deeper and wider Than I'll ever swim The heart it will harden The sorrow will dim But I cried a river A river for him So sweep for the sons And the dear darling daughters For the passing of time And the parting of waters For all who have passed through This world long before me To a far distant shore line Where no one waits for me But I cried a river A river for him That's deeper and wider Than I'll ever swim The heart it will harden The sorrow will dim But I cried a river A river for him
