Lyrics:

Well we sailed for a month and a mornin' or more
With the rain and the hope in our eyes
When we came to a place where we stood on the shore
And a river of silver rolled by

Now the earth was as black as the blackest of things
It was tended by angels with dirt on their wings
And the old ones grew wise, the children grew strong
The river kept rollin' along

Roll away silver river
Roll away on by
For your time has come to shine

Instrumental

There's a bridge on that river and a train on that bridge
That was carried away in the night
Though we lived by its bounty that river runs deep
She took all the souls to the light

Roll away silver river
Roll away on by
For your time has come

Roll away silver river
Roll away on by
For your time has come to shine
To shine, to shine, to shine
