Lost River-crd   Nitty Gritty Dirt Band




Subject: Contribution

Thanks to Cowpie friends, Oldtimer and Summer of 75, I was able to get the
lyrics to "Lost River." Written by Michael Martin Murphey, recorded by The
Nitty Gritty Dirt Band on Album titled "Will the Circle Be Unbroken, Vol.
II"  I play it in the key of C.   Jeanie

Lost River

(C) There's a Lost River that flows
(C7) In a (F) valley where no one (C) goes
Where the (G7) wild water's (F) rush
Rumbles (G7) deep in the (C) hush
Gone far from there (C7) now
Lord, (F) I'll get back some-(C) how
To where the (G7) Lost River (F) winds
In the (G7) shadow of the (C) pines

Chorus 1:
(C) Oh, Lost River, (C7) now (F) I'm coming (C) back
To the (G7) pot-belly (F) stove
Where the (G7) firewood's all (C) stacked
Oh Quebec girl, go with (C7) me
Oh my (F) belle, my fleur-de(C) -lis
Where the (G7) Lost River (F) winds
In the (G7) shadow of the (C) pines

Now everybody knows
Where that Lost River flows
It's someplace he's lost
Behind bridges that he's crossed
Well, he'd like to return
But his bridges are all burned
And he's much too far down
To return to higher ground

Chorus 2:
Oh Lost River, far over the ridge
Now is it too late
For me to build me a new bridge
To the bright golden time
When her love was still mine
And the world was still wild
Like the heart of a child

Repeat Chorus 1

Where the Lost River winds
In the shadow of the pines
