riverside

© words and music: garnett betts

Oh, come down to the levee on the riverside
Feel the heat of the day rise
Into the summer night
Clear into the summer night
Down by Riverside

Take that worry wound up inside
Been afraid to to stumble
Tryin’ to make it right
Let that trouble rise
Clear into that simmer night

Chorus

And the river’s slow and the night’s so clear
Makes you wonder why it’s been so long
Since you’ve been down here
Just to walk by the water
And the stars above
Let your head cool down and the heat rise up
Clear into that summer night
Down by Riverside

Bridge

Up on the bridge the cars run up above
There’s no slowin’ down, less you’re broken down
Don’t have to leave town
There’s no map, no money down
Right here you can measure
Between your dream and forever

Chorus

Where the river’s slow and the night’s so clear
Makes you wonder why it’s been so long
Since you’ve been down here
Just to walk by the water
And the stars above
Let your head cool down and the heat rise up

Clear into that summer night
Down by Riverside

No you can’t see round the bend in the river
Look up at the stars, you see forever
In the middle of town

Chorus

Where the river’s slow and the night’s so clear
Makes you wonder why it’s been so long
Since you’ve been down here
Just to walk by the water
And the stars above
Let your head cool down and the heat rise up

Clear into that summer night
Down by Riverside

Everything’s so clear
And that’s why you’re here
Clear into that summer night
Down by Riverside
