"Sailing Down My Golden River".

"Sailing Down My Golden River"

   Sailing down my golden river,
   Sun and water all my own,
   Yet I was never alone.
   Sun and water, old life givers,
   I'll have them where e'er I roam,
   And I was not far from home.
   Sunlight glancing on the water,
   Life and death are all my own,
   Yet I was never alone.
   Life to raise my sons and daughters,
   Golden sparkles in the foam,
   And I was not far from home.
   Sailing down this winding highway,
   Travelers from near and far,
   Yet I was never alone.
   Exploring all the little by-ways,
   Sighting all the distant stars,
   And I was not far from home.
