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 Tag: Where the Lost River winds In the shadow of the pines Jeanie Ramos Ramostj@pacbell.net
