Lyrics

Christmas in The River


T=was not very long ago I still remember so
Walking up Fisherman=s road
With snow gently falling my mother out calling
The smell of a wood burning stove
The sound of a sleigh and a horse eating hay
My Father I Finally see
He=s calling to mother my sister and brothers
What do you think of the tree.


Chorus:
A Blanket of white on those cold winter nights
Carry me back , cause me to grin
With children=s hearts gleaming warm holiday feelings
It=s Christmas in The River again.

With friends on our street now we surely would meet
In the Church at the end of the road
To pray close together still I=d watch the weather
As snow fell on trees in the grove
To play the next day with my new wooden sleigh
Was all now that I could think of
For all of these memories so vivid and lovely
I thank the Lord up above.

Chorus:

Now being much older those days seem much colder
My old wooden sleigh now is gone
Yet the spirit of youth to tell you the truth
Takes me back where I belong
To warm friendly kisses and mom doin= dishes
After our huge Christmas meal
These thoughts I=ll hold close and remember the most
For Christmas in The River was real.
