Lyrics
Let the River Carry Me

Clouds are gatherin’
It’s getting dark
The rain is coming
Prepare the ark

A river forming
From the tears
Oh, I’m gonna float
On outta here

Oh, let the river carry me
Oh, let the river carry me
Until I’m whole

The current runnin’
Strong and fast
The future’s comin’
From the past

Nothing’s different
And all is changed
Shifting hearts
Lives rearranged

Oh, let the river carry me
Oh, let the river carry me
Until I’m whole

In the stillness
Of the deep
I lay me down
My soul to keep

Rock me gently
And rock me, Light
Hold me steady
Hold me tight

Rob's M-bed reminds of CSN&Y-Joni Mitchell times.

Well Out
Glad this one saw the light of day. Your voices harmonise so well, as so many people have pointed out, i know!

Something biblical about this, (probably the mention of the ark!) it would not jar at a gospel gathering, and would sound really good with a crowd singing the chorus i think.

Lovely. Thanks.

Great vocals - as always
Lovely singin' ladies! You two can do no vocal wrong. If I was doing this of course I'd have more guitars and a rhythm section from the end of the first verse - but that may not be such a great idea considering how nicely this one turned out.
Good one Marty and Big Sis!
Best from Oz,

River Carry Me
Hi Marty and Anne. Another fine vehicle for your vocal collaborations. Definite Joni feel to the guitar work and the CSN-like harmonies are a real treat. Like this a lot. Thanks for the D/L. Regards, Peter.

Beautiful chord
and tonal changes here. Effective harmonies against the bright guitar. Reminds me of some country chicks singing on a porch somewhere rural USA - lovely!

LET THE RIVER CARRY ME
Nice tune - kinda reminds me of some older Heart music. Great vocal harmonies. I thought the ending came up on me too quickly - I was just starting to get into the lulling rhythm. Guess I'll have to hit replay :)

Nice work and I enjoyed the listen - thanks!
