Lazy Waters

This song is by The Byrds and appears on the album Farther Along (1971) and on the box set The Byrds (1990).

When I was young I'd go down by the river
Just about a mile from my home
A million miles from everyone
My eyes could see your water
My ears could hear your song
Oh to be wise again
Get back to your lazy waters
Never needed anyone but you

Oh little boys are strange, No one knows they have magic
I kept it in my pocket
Concealed from everyone
But I climbed the highest tree
To sing a bird my song
Oh to be wise again
Get back to your lazy waters
Never needed anyone but you

We moved to the city I said I wouldn't mind
Thought you'd stay inside me
It's easy when your young
But as we rode away
I knew you were gone
Oh to be wise again Get back to your lazy waters
Never needed anyone but you
