PRAYER AT THE RIVER

by Genie Webster


I go down to the river just to find peace of mind.
I hear her in the distance, like wind.
I know that I can trust her, and I know she’ll steal me blind,

And I know I’ll be comin’ back again,
Yes I know I’ll be comin’ back again.

Carry my troubles far away… to the Pyramid*, and
Bring me a clean mountain breeze.
And show me how to move like you with graceful motion
Now that I’m down on my knees,
Now that I’m down on my knees.

*Pyramid Lake

I was standing on that bridge in downtown Reno, by the park,
Where people throw their wedding rings away…
I toss a few regrets in and some memories from the dark
And I watch the river carry them away.
Yes I watch the river carry them away.

Carry my troubles far away… to the Pyramid*, and
Bring me a clean mountain breeze.
And show me how to move like you with graceful motion
Now that I’m down on my knees,
Now that I’m down on my knees.
Sometimes she’s raging fast and sometimes she’s slowin’,
Sometimes she’s high and then she’s low.
But one thing for certain is, she knows just where she’s goin’…
And she’ll tell you anything you want to know,
Yeah, she’ll tell you anything you want to know.

Carry my troubles far away… to the Pyramid*, and
Bring me a clean mountain breeze.
And show me how to move like you with graceful motion
Now that I’m down on my knees,
Now that I’m down on my knees.
