I have listened to MWR's take of the song and it has some differences when compared to GUEST,Badger's lyrics @ 29 Nov 04 - 09:55 AM.

Here's what I hear (changes capitalized)

Susquehanna

Of late as I did travel my heart filled with despair
I came upon a wondrous sight WHICH drove away my care
Where glittering waters glide and magic filled the air
BESIDE the Susquehanna and ALONG the Delaware

Of where and how I do not know and why I do not care
From now until forever more my soul WILL wander there
By flood and field and sunlit hill by wood and meadow fair
BESIDE the Susquehanna and ALONG the Delaware

I think and hope and dream no more the dreams of other where
Of things that were and might have been this man HAD ceased to care
For I have BREATHED too long [omit and] too deep the lotus in the air
BESIDE the Susquehanna and ALONG the Delaware
