Words by Ian Tyson

How come we can't talk to each other any more?
Why can't you see I'm changing too?
We've got by far too long to end it feeling wronged
And I still share too much with you


Just one great river always flowing to the sea
One single river rolling in eternity
Two nations in the land that lies along its shore
But just one river rolling free

How come you shut me out as if I wasn't there
What's this new bitterness you've found?
However wronged you were, however strong it hurt
It wasn't me that held you down.

Just one great river always flowing to the sea
One single river rolling in eternity
Two nations in the land that lies along its shore
But just one river rolling free

Why can't you understand I'm glad you're standing proud
I know you made it on your own
But in this pride you've earned, I thought you might have learned
That you don't have to stand alone

Lonely northern rivers come together till you see
One single river rolling in eternity
Two nations in the land that lies along its shore
But just one river, you and me
