Follow me down to the river
On a bright, clear summer day.
We’ll search for minnows by the river bank
And take the time to play.
Follow me out to the meadow
Where the wild flowers grow.
We’ll stop and smell all the flowers
And dance as the wind blows.
Follow me down to the sea,
And we’ll walk in the drifting tide.
We’ll pick up sea shells on the shore
And open our arms wide.
Follow me down the road of life
And give me a helping hand.
When the road seems long and hard,
Just tell me you’ll understand.
For life is always a mixture
Of joy as well as sorrow,
And while today may be full of loss,
There is always the hope of tomorrow.
