​Down Where The River Bends

This song is by Old & In The Way.

It's hard to keep the tears out of my eyes
For this might be our last goodbye
Your country calls you to defend this great land
So do your part just like a man

Down where the river bends
With God's help, we'll meet again
Under the same old sycamore tree
Proud of each other in the land of the free

I'll go down to the ocean blue
And get just as close as I came to you
Though the ocean wide may keep us apart
It won't keep you, dear, from out of my heart

Down where the river bends
With God's help, we'll meet again
Under the same old sycamore tree
Proud of each other in the land of the free

If the worst should happen and the poppies should wave
Over your far and distant and lonely grave
All the rest of my life I would spend in prayer
I'll meet you in Heaven, they'll be no war there

Down where the river bends
With God's help, we'll meet again
Under the same old sycamore tree
Proud of each other in the land of the free
Proud of each other in the land of the free
