Emmylou Harris Lyrics

A River for Him by Emmylou Harris


[Verse 1]
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

[Chorus]
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

[Verse 2]
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
[Chorus]

[Verse 3]
So weep for the sons
And the dear darling daughters
For the pas*ing of time
And the parting of waters
For all who have pas*ed through
This world long before me
To a far distant shoreline
Where no one waits for me

[Chorus]
