If the Waters Could Speak as They Flow.
Copyright, 1887, by Willis Woodward & Co.
Words and Music by Charles Graham.

If the waters could speak as they flow along
To the depths of the mighty sea,
What sorrow and tears and laughter and song
Would its pent up bosom free;
Tales of many a shatter'd life,
And once golden hopes laid low,
Would mingle with those of careers more bright
If the waters could speak as they flow;
Would mingle with those of careers more bright
If the waters could speak as they flow.

Chorus.
Stories of laughter and tears,
And once golden hopes laid low,
Would mingle with those of brighter careers
If the waters could speak as they flow.

If the waters could speak as they flow along
Of scenes in the ages past.
Or tell of the great and mighty throng
That shall wake at the trumpet's blast;
Unwritten lore of love and war,
That the world will never know,
Would come before us from days of yore
If the waters could speak as they flow;
Would come before us from days of yore
If the waters could speak as they flow.-Chorus.
