a river for him lyrics

emmylou harris
Artist: emmylou harris
Song: a river for him
I crossed on the river
There'll be no returning
I crossed all the bridges
I watched them all burning

And now I'm a stranger
To a strange land I'm driven
Where all is forgotten
And nothing's forgiven

But I cried a river
A river for him
That's deeper and wider
Than I'll ever swim

The heart it will harden
The sorrow will dim
But I cried a river
A river for him

I think of him now
On the road I am taking
And wonder how long
His heart will be breaking

But he'll never hear when
The teardrops are falling
Or the sound of my voice
And the name I'm calling

But I cried a river
A river for him
That's deeper and wider
Than I'll ever swim

The heart it will harden
The sorrow will dim
But I cried a river
A river for him

So weep for the sons
And the dear darling daughters
For the passing of time
And the parting of waters

For all who have passed through
This world long before me
To a far distant shoreline
Where no one waits for me

But I cried a river
A river for him
That's deeper and wider
Than I'll ever swim

The heart it will harden
The sorrow will dim
But I cried a river
A river for him
