Baby, dry your eyes
There's no need to cry
'Cause I'll see you again 
It might be a while  Before you understand 

I'm just away down the river

To the other shore
I'll be standing, waiting 
With all who've gone before 
I'm just away down the river 
A hundred miles or more

Now the pictures on the wall
Will help you to recall 
They're not there 
To make you sad
But to remember 
All the good times we had


When it's time to leave 
You're gonna feel the mountain breeze
And the snow will fill the stream 
And carry you to me
