There's a beautiful winding old river,
Where I used to live long ago;
How I miss those beautiful valleys,
And green hills where I used to roam.

When I was a boy, I would wander,
On a trail by that old river shore;
The wind gently rocking the treetops,
How I long for to stroll there once more.

Take me back to my home by the river,
Where I was so happy and free;
By the shore the willow hang o'er the water,
That old river is heaven to me.

In the winter out along the frozen river,
With a sleigh and sheet we'd sail upon the snow;
Not a worry or a care, just fun and laughter,
Up and down that dear old river we would go.

I remember in that little village schoolhouse,
That old giant stove would drive away the cold,
Bringing comfort to us in that little classroom,
While the pages about history we'd unfold.

Take me back to my home by the river,
Where I was so happy and free;
By the shore the willow hang o'er the water,
That old river is heaven to me.
By the shore the willow hang o'er the water,
That old river is heaven to me.
