RIVER LADY
(by: ?. Adams.)

The day the river freezes is the day it won't seem fair,
For they'll come to get the River Lady, and I don't think they'll care,
I know they'll scrape her paint off in their same old foolish way,
Now the people see the river, but the old ship's gone away.

Chorus:

Water turns cold, and gets to freezing,
Before you even know it the old girl's easing,
Away from her berth, around by the point, and out of our view.
Off in the mist her engines pounding,
Back on the banks that old horn's sounding,
A little "Goodbye.", a little "I'll do what I must do." (repeat line)

I know I will remember when I cannot hear that horn,
That would roll up by the mountains, as she took us through the storm,
I know they've got to take her, but I can't say I approve,
'Cause she's won so many battles, that I hate to see her lose.

NOTE: I would love to know who the writer "Adams" is.

Regards,

Shimbo
