The Songs of Gallus Line
The River
Gallus Line
©1991, 2000
The steel is cold
The cables they are tight
The bridge stands alone
In the foggy night.
But it can't carry me
To the other side
The water is cold
The river is wide
And I see you standing
On the other side
With your love
This river ain't as wide.

Two lovers stand on a hill
Embrace
Their loving hearts they fill
Yeah, the days go drifting by
Sometimes the night times are wide
And I know you stand
On the other side
With your love
The nighttime ain't as wide.

Refrain:
So, come take my hand
And I'll stand with you
So, come take my hand
Oh, I love you.

Additional Verses:
The plane goes
Soaring through the sky
She is sad
The children they cry
Yeah, the miles go drifting by
Sailing o'er the country side
And I know you
Stand on the other side
With your love
This country ain't as wide.

The sun comes
Shining o'er the hill.
I get up
My working day to fill.
The hours go slowly by
As through the working day I try
I know you stand
On the other side
With your love (Refrain)
