Sailing Down My Golden River

Sailing Down My Golden River

Sailing down my golden river,
Sun and water all my own,
Yet I was never alone.

Sun and water, old life givers,
I'll have them where e'er I roam,
And I was not far from home.

Sunlight glancing on the water,
Life and death are all my own,
Yet I was never alone.

Life to raise my sons and daughters,
Golden sparkles in the foam,
And I was not far from home.

Sailing down this winding highway,
Travelers from near and far,
Yet I was never alone.

Exploring all the little by-ways,
Sighting all the distant stars,
And I was not far from home.
