King charles lady of the river lyrics



Down in darkest Chelsea,
where all the riverboats lie
of travellers and the river bums
and the old timers passin' by
below the lonesome chaos,
far from any footskeppin' street
towards the steely ocean,
there's a girl I long to meet

Baby won't you come down row with me
where all the river boats lie
in the end together we can try to turn the tide
who knows who we'll return our wings to some of those restless souls
lord knows its what we're in to now we've opened the doors

Oh where are you now my lady of the river,
are you worthy of your faith
for the power to drench your man in love is as strong as the driving rain
what do you want my river girl, do you see when you go down
in the sky above the river boats, is it your heart that begins to drown

Baby won't you come down row with me
where all the river boats lie
in the end together we can try to turn the tide
who knows who we'll return our wings to some of those restless souls
lord knows its what we're in to now we've opened the doors

oh why do you cry my lady friend,
the world is at your feet
oh love is knocking at your door just dying to hear you speak
why do you row my riverboat
are you worthy of this pain
for what I thought was love in me
just added to my pain

Baby won't you come down row with me
where all the river boats lie
in the end together we can try to turn the tide
who knows who we'll return our wings to some of those restless souls
lord knows its what we're in to now we've opened the doors

Baby won't you come down row with me
where all the river boats lie
in the end together we can try to turn the tide
who knows who we'll return our wings to some of those restless souls
lord knows its what we're in to now we've opened the doors
