Down Riverview Road (Anchors Aweigh)

Click Here for tabs.

The photograph hangs in my mind,
Of a general store frozen in time;
Where a childhood treat only cost a dime,
And we hung out all day long.

In the evening time when men came 'round,
Old Joe told lies till the sun went down;
Then they stopped by Effie's on the way to town,
Lomond was the place to be.

There's a place at the end of Riverview Road,
Where the grass is green and the wind don't blow;
Where the sun shines bright and the Lomond flows,
Down to the sea by Riverview Road.

Then came the fall of thirty-eight,
And I met my girl by the old school gate;
We talked about our wedding, we said we'd wait,
Till our house was all but done.

Then the war broke out in thirty-nine,
We all signed up to serve our time;
There's a price for freedom and I paid mine,
When I headed off to war.

There's a place at the end of Riverview Road,
Where the grass is green and the wind don't blow;
Where the sun shines bright and the Lomond flows,
Down to the sea by Riverview Road.

My mind goes back through time and tears,
To a prison camp for many a year;
She's another's now, that's what I feared,
'Cause Lomond was not to be.

Where the Lomond River meets the sea,
There's a love knot tied in an old fir tree;
In the tall green grass a basement shows,
But no one lives down Riverview Road.

There's a place at the end of Riverview Road,
Where the grass is green and the wind don't blow;
Where the sun shines bright and the Lomond flows,
Down to the sea by Riverview Road.

There's a place at the end of Riverview Road,
Where the grass is green and the wind don't blow;
Where the sun shines bright and the Lomond flows,
Down to the sea by Riverview Road.
Down to the sea by Riverview Road.
