I went down to the river John
Were the water circles back around
Thought I saw you, the sun goin’ low
In oblong shadows
But I couldn’t trust my eyes
To see clear in faded light

Was that you?
Was that you on the river John?

I was standing by the old fallin’ bridge
Where we used to go when we were kids
Remembering days long gone
Clouds gathering all around
I could have sworn that I heard my name
In the sound of the coming rain

Was that you?
Was that you on the river John?
I’ll meet you down by the river John
Look for me I wont be long
I’ll be walkin’ easy slow
When you see me let me know
Some they cry, some they pray
I’ll see you on another day

Is that you?
Is that you on the river John?
Is that you?
Is that you down on the river John?
