RIVER OF LIGHT (Gordon Lightfoot) As recorded Gordon Lightfoot 2004 Headin' off on a river at peace in the cool of an evening Headin' off on a river of light, be part of a river at night Nice to be on a river sometimes, like a June bug travellin' Headin' off on a ribbon of song, been away from the river too long. Good to be on a river somewhere, like a milkweed travellin' Headin' off on a ribbon of dreams, be a part of a river it seems Can you tell me how long must I travel on. I won't be lookin' up old friends I won't be lookin' up old friends ever again. I spent my life takin' my time and I can't change anything Take a look at my river of light, be a part of a river at night Nice to be on a river at peace, like a June bug travellin' Headin' off on a river at last, my tears will be all in the past. Good to be on a river somewhere, like a milkweed travellin' Headin' down where the water runs deep, down deep where the fish are asleep Now can you tell me how long must I travel on. I won't be lookin' up old friends I won't be lookin' up old friends ever again. Trouble don't mean nothin' to me and I had my share of it Headin' off on a river of light, be a part of a river at night Nice to be on a river at peace in the cool of an evening Headin' off on a silver moonlight, maybe love'll find me tonight. Good to be on a river somewhere, like a milkweed travellin' Headin' off on a ribbon of dreams, be a part of a river it seems Can you tell me how long must I travel on. I won't be lookin' up old friends I won't be lookin' up old friends ever again Ever again, ever again. (Transcribed by David Story - March 2013)
