ENCHANTED RIVER
 
by Meredith Kennedy
 
 
I want to take Enchanted River
along its long and winding way,
don’t wait to call my name aloud,
Where I have gone, I cannot hear .
 
I have to go, I have to follow,
the river calls my heart to fly,
and if you call my name tomorrow,
I will have gone along its way.
 
And if I find its magic waters
can soothe my heart and ease my pain,
if you will call my name in sorrow,
then I will find my home again.
 
I have to go, I have to follow,
the river calls my heart to fly,
and if you call my name tomorrow,
I will have gone along its way.
 
And if I know my heart is breaking,
then I will never find my way
so I will go before you call me,
before you sweetly call my name.
 
And if you call my name tomorrow,
I will have gone along its way
and if you find Enchanted River
then you will know my name again.
 
I have to go, I have to follow,
the river calls my heart to fly,
and if you call my name tomorrow,

                                        I will have gone along its way.
