He left on a boat
Just to follow a dream
He had to find.

You can't hold a man
When he follows a dream
That's on his mind.

I see a boat on the river,
It's sailing away
Down to the ocean,

Where to I can't say.
Boat on the river,
It's sailing away

Down to the ocean,
Where to I can't say.
I waited for him

Such a very long time,
Don't know what for
'Cause I should have known

When he left on the boat
We'll meet no more.
I see a boat on the river,

It's sailing away
Down to the ocean,
Where to I can't say.

Boat on the river,
It's sailing away
Down to the ocean,

Where to I can't say.
Boat on the river,
It's sailing away

Down to the ocean,
Where to I can't say.
Boat on the river.

You're bound for the sea,
If you should find him
Please greet him from me.

And said it's really a shame,
Why did he take off

To follow just a dream.
But I guess they were wrong,
In life you're sailing along

And things don't turn out
As simple as they seem.
Boat on the river,

It's sailing away
Down to the ocean,
Where to I can't say.

I see a boat on the river,
It's sailing away
Down to the ocean,

Where to I can't say.
I see a boat on the river.
You're bound for the sea,

If you should find him
Please greet him from me.
Boat on the river,

It's sailing away
Down to
