Life Is A River Lyrics And Chords By Derek Ryan. An Irish country music song.

As I went out walking, on a fine summer day.
Through hills and the valleys, I soon lost my way.
'till I came to an old man, kneeling down by a stream.
Gazing into the water, like he was lost in a dream.

In his hand was a picture, he clung to for life.
His eyes filled with tears, as he tried not to cry.
He looked to the heaven's and started to pray.
In the quiet country silence, I could hear the man say.
Chorus.
Life is a river, I'll go with the flow.
And where it will take me, the Lord only knows.
I miss you sweetheart, your kindness and love.
But I know one day, we'll sail away on God's ocean above.

He said now young man, your a stranger to me.
Could I bother you kindly, for your company.
Today I am thinking, of a time long ago.
And I need to tell someone, of a girl I loved so.

It's forty two years today, since Rose took my hand.
And proudly I lived life, her husband her man.
'till only last week son, God took her away.
As I kissed her softly, these words she did say.

Life is a river, I'll go with the flow.
And where it will take me, the Lord only knows.
I miss you sweetheart, your kindness and love.
But I know one day, we'll sail away on God's ocean above.

And with that the old man, sent me on my way.
And sat by the water, I'll kneel for the day
I look at the river, starting out on it's life.
It's where I've been close to, my beautiful wife.
