Linda Ronstadt - A River for Him lyrics

written by Emmylou Harris copyright 1987 Sorghum Music (ASCAP) I crossed on the river There'll be no returning I crossed all the bridges I watched them all burning And now I'm a stranger To a strange land I'm driven Where all is forgotten And nothing's forgiven But I cried a river A river for him That's deeper and wider Than I'll ever swim The heart it will harden The sorrow will dim But I cried a river A river for him I think of him now On the road I am taking And wonder how long His heart will be breaking But he'll never hear when The teardrops are falling Or the sound of my voice Or the name I am calling But I cried a river A river for him That's deeper and wider Than I'll ever swim The heart it will harden The sorrow will dim But I cried a river A river for him So weep for the sons And the dear darling daughters For the pa**ing of time And the parting of waters For all who have pa**ed through This world long before me To a far distant shore line Where no one waits for me But I cried a river A river for him That's deeper and wider Than I'll ever swim The heart it will harden The sorrow will dim But I cried a river A river for him --------------------------------------------------------- GUITARS: Dean Parks DRUMS: Russ Kunkel BASS: Leland Sklar ACOUSTIC PIANO AND SYNTHESIZER: Robbie Buchanan GLASS ARMONICA: Dennis James BASS AND ALTO FLUTE: Jon Clarke ALL BACKGROUND VOCALS: Linda Ronstadt ORCHESTRA ARRANGED AND CONDUCTED BY David Campbell
