Down Where the River Meets the Road

Words & Music by Steve Gillette and Barry Hyman

Buy song


Just an old abandoned logging trace
Winding down along the bluff,
But it always was our sacred place.
A small world, but world enough
To walk along the water 
Down where the river meets the road.

Back in those dog days of August
When the sun lay heavy on the land,
We found refuge in the cool of the forest
Where we would venture, hand in hand,
And walk along the water,
Down where the river meets the road.

Down where the road meets the river
There's a place we made our own.
It's funny how a man can search the world over,
Only to find his way home
And to know it for the first time.

So I often wonder where love has found you
And if your dreams are coming true
And if you still can see that summer sky
In our little patch of blue.
And if somewhere we still can find a quiet place
Where the sun shines through
To sparkle on the water
Down where the river meets the road.

To shine upon the water
Down where the river meets the road.
