Gone Down River

This song is by Tom Rush and appears on the album Merrimack County (1972).

Rush

You say the clouds will make you cry, I can't say
The sun is in my eyes and I can't see a thing today
You ask me what the future holds, I don't know
The wind is in my ears and I can't hear you

And I'm gone, gone down river
I'm gone to see the sea
Well I'm gone, gone tomorrow
Child of sorrow, don't weep for me

You ask me just to stay with you, I can't stay
Find another man to come and drive your dreams away
You say you'd like to sing my song, sing along
We've got a short time here, such a long time gone

And I'm gone, gone down river
I'm gone to see the sea
Well, I'm gone, gone forever
Gone tomorrow, hero today.
