Where The River Meets The Sea

(Mike Sparks)

Where river meets the sea
That's the place she waits for me
On the dockside patiently
Where the river meets the sea

When the river's ceaseless glide
Meets up with the wind and tide
And steals me from my true love's side
Where the river meets the sea

When the dark clouds steeple high
When the wheeling seabirds cry
In her arms I long to lie
Where the river meets the sea

A man whose mistress is the sea
The ocean is his destiny
Even though he longs to be
Where the river meets the sea

I wish I had the strength of mind
To leave this roaming life behind
In her arms some peace to find
Where the river meets the sea
