​Lost Rivers Of London

This song is by Big Big Train and appears on the album Folklore (2016).

Lost rivers of London
Long lost revers of London
By the palace and the abbeys
By the lakes in the parks
Black waters rise
From one hundred springs and wells

Lost rivers of London town
Long lost rivers of London town
Underneath the houses on the
Old Kent Road
If you listen very hard
You can hear the river flow

Headwaters out on the hills
And the meadows
Run through the fields
To the city streets
Paved with stone
And after the rain
Through the cracks in the pavement
The rivers will rise
As they make their way
To the shore

Lost rivers of London town
Long lost rivers of London town
Canute sailed the Effra
On the high spring tide
Now the black river hides
Under Turnagain Lane

Headwaters out on the hills
And the meadows
Run through the fields
To the city streets
Paved with stone
And after the rain
Through the cracks in the pavement
The rivers will reise
As they make their way
To the shore

Lost rivers of London
Long lost rivers of London town
Lost rivers of London
Long lost rivers of London town
The Fleet and the Tyburn
And the Neckinger
The Westbourne and the Walbrook
And the river Effra
