River Just Knows
by Rodney Atkins



4 a.m. comes awful early, and I was dead on my feet
But if you gonna catch a biggest fish
You gotta lose a little sleep
Well, I pack my gear and a couple beers
I headed for my favorite spot
Well, I curse my luck when I saw his truck right where I pulled off
Wish open to have the river to myself that day

'Cause the river don't talk, the river don't care
Where you've been, what you've done
Why it is your standin' there
It just flows on by whisperin' to your soul
It's gonna be alright, the river just knows

The way the sun bounced off the water
I couldn't wholely make him out
But I could see he had a fish on
A big ole rainbow trout
The fight went on forever
And as he headed down my way, I saw his
Military hair cut and the new scars on his face
Right then I knew what brought him to this place

You know the river don't talk, the river don't care
Where you've been, what you've done
Don't know why it is your standin' there
It just flows on by whisperin' to your soul
It's gonna be alright, the river just knows

He held that fish down in the water
And it caused to back the line
He said "Help, you get your wind back
'Cause you help me get mine"
And all I could think to say was "Welcome home"
But I think that river said it best on its own

'Cause the river don't talk, you know the river don't care
Where you've been, what's you've done
Why it is your standin' there
It just flows on by whisperin' to your soul
It's gonna be alright, the river just knows
It's gonna be alright, the river just knows
