This song is by Ellis Paul and appears on the album The Day After Everything Changed (2010).

I'm skipping stones
At the edge of the dock
A fog came rolling in,
Quiet like a hawk
The river's so smooth,
It could shatter with a rock
It felt like I was walking on water

Then the doctor's daughter
Came and dove right in
Lord Almighty,
She's in nothing but skin
I could turn my head
But she may never come again
She's filling the sky
With her laughter

You're shaking the timbers
You're rattling the leaves
There's a full moon rising
In front of me
Come and stake your claim in my memory


Did the good Lord send you
Down to deliver me
Come lay your head in a bed of leaves
I am here, I am yours for the taking

Well, around about midnight
On a riverboat ride
I'm a mandolin jukebox
And Annie's at my side
One bottle empty,
One waiting like a bride
She's dancing like light on the water

We've got six weeks till college
Six weeks and then we're gone
Oh, life is like a river
And the river's rolling on
So come on, Annie
You taste like brandy
Will you kiss me awake come morning?

I can't promise a lifetime of tomorrows
What tomorrow brings God only knows
I know this about tomorrow
We're filling it with sorrow
If we let tonight just end
