Down To A River (Alan's Song) by Connie Kaldor

Here are the lyrics to one of my favorite songs.

Down To a River (Alan’s Song) by Connie Kaldor

There are dinners, there’s music

There is laughter there were tears

There are memories that go back

Over the years

There are the marks made in a life

Like only good friends do

Now I must choose to make a mark

For the things I loved in you

 

CHORUS:

 

I’ll go down to a river

And plant a tree

Something strong, wild and living

Those are my memories

And I’ll go up to a mountain

And sing to the stars

Can you hear me

Where ever you are.

 

 

And there’s phone calls and there’s crying

And there’s clutching to the chest

And there’s singing songs and throwing dirt

And laying down to rest

 

And there’s carving words on stone

And making church bells ring

But the river when it freezes over

Still thaws and runs each spring

 

 

So I will go down to a river

And plant a tree

Something strong, wild and living

Those are my memories

 

And I’ll go up to a mountain

And sing to the stars

Can you hear me

Where ever you are.

 

Do you hear the ones who loved you

And who were glad they knew you well

Do the hearts you left that miss you

Ring like a bell

 

I will go down to a river

And plant a tree

Strong, wild and living

Those are my memories

 

And I’ll go up to a mountain

And sing to the stars

Can you hear me

Where ever you are

 

 

Can you hear me

Can you hear me

Where ever you are
