Where the long river flows It flows by my window.

Where the tall timber grows It grows 'round my door.

Where the mountains meet the sky And the white clouds fly.

There's a tiny bird that calls And it calls 'round my window.
There's a lonely tear that falls And it falls 'round my door.
But when the sun is high There's no time to cry.
Where the long river flows by my window.
    
         (Bridge)

Now if only you could see The closing of the day.
If only you could be Where the dawn breaks away.
By the white cascade Or down in the glade.
Where the long river flows by my window.

Well when this land was made It was made full of wonders.
Still one woman's love it’s so hard to understand.
But I would gave it all to you If her love were true.
Where the long river flows by my window.

G    D C   G     D C   G     D C   G  C G  

               D            D7                    G
Where the long river flows     by my window.
