Roll River Roll
HAWLEY Richard Lyrics


Roll river, keep on rolling
Ancient lady cold
I'm forsaken, lost and forgotten
Roll river roll

Roll river, roll river roll

Let it take me, free and unchain me
Ancient lady cold
Keep on rolling, roll on forever
Hope we shall meet at home

Roll river, roll river roll

You hold my body, lost and forsaken
In your deep waters cold
Oh, sacred river take me to my sweetheart
My lonely bones

Will she remember?
Oh, river take me on my journey home
Deep dark waters to learn your secrets
River angel rise

Roll river, roll river roll
Roll river, roll over my bones

Lyrics cause it's hard to find em,
Roll river, keep on rolling
Ancient lady cold
I'm forsaken, lost and forgotten
Roll river roll

Roll river, roll river roll

Let it take me, free and unchain me
Ancient lady cold
Keep on rolling, roll on forever
Hope we shall meet at home

Roll river, roll river roll

You hold my body, lost and forsaken
In your deep waters cold
Oh, sacred river take me to my sweetheart
My lonely bones

Will she remember?
Oh, river take me on my journey home
Deep dark waters to learn your secrets
River angel rise

Roll river, roll river roll
Roll river, roll over my bones

My absolute favourite piece of music. Beautiful melody, lyrics and musical composition. And this smooth voice!. The best song I have ever heard!

I’m from the USA. Glad I found the BBC series “Getting On” where this beautiful tune was featured. Love both the disturbing but intriguing series & this memorable song ❤️
