Dennis the Elder Lyr Req: My Name Is Calder Rivers (Calder Rivers) (35) Lyr Add: MY NAME IS CALDER RIVERS (Calder Rivers) 07 Apr 14


Thanks Calder for your goodwill gesture of sending me your CD, there are many songs on it that I love.
Apart from "My Name is Calder Rivers" I particularly like "I picked a fine time to leave you" another song you wrote yourself.
I am glad to hear that your voice is still good, although sad that you are not performing as often as you did.

I enclose below the words of your song which you have permitted me to quote (as you have Copyright) for the use of the original Guest who posted this thread. I hope they will like it as much as me.

MY NAME IS CALDER RIVERS
(Calder Rivers)

In a little town in Yorkshire, where the River Calder flows
My Mamma named me Calder, because I was a Yorkshire Rose
She begged me not to grow up, and marry the cheating kind
I do think Yorkshire gentlemen is what she had in mind

For I met you down in Nashville, and I loved you from the start
I should have listened to mamma, because you had a cheating heart
My name is Calder Rivers, and all day long I cried
I never ever leave you, until the day I die

My Yorkshire heart is broken, and my mind is hear with you
You wouldn't find another girl, who loves you like I do
For when my life is over, and you've lost your English rose
Take my body back to Yorkshire, where the River Calder flows

My Yorkshire heart is broken, and my mind is hear with you
You wouldn't find another girl, who loves you like I do
For when my life is over, and you've lost your English Rose
Take my body back to Yorkshire, where the River Calder flows
Take my body back to Yorkshire, where the River Calder flows

Thanks again Calder, look forward to hearing you sing in person sometime.
