The River [alternate Version] – Uriah Heep

River, rising to hide across the midnight
Wanderin’ westward by daylight
Take us and lead us to tomorrow
As fast as you come and can flow

River, you’re windin’ an unending rhythm
The sooner keep movin’ to warn him
The spirit that keeps us from sinking
Guide us from going astray

Point us a way to a shoreline ahead
Through the mist and the fog
Of this valley of death
Too many years we have
Walked in a sleep
Now we’re awaken and ready fo flee

River, we hitchhikers beggin’ for mercy
Survive us from yesterday’s curses
Don’t damn us before you receive us

Lyric The River [alternate Version] – Uriah Heep
