Mighty River

If Only You Could Talk

Mighty river_I stand in awe watching you moving so fast

I wish you could tell me all the secrets of your past

How many lovers embraced here under starry skies

With a smiling moon shining in their loving eyes.

Mighty river's secrets will always be kept

About happy lovers together or sad ones who wept

When they realized their love didn't feel the same_

Mighty river perhaps long ago a lover gave you your name.

Mighty River if only you could talk...
