BRIEF DESCRIPTION

BONEY M/I SEE BOAT ON THE RIVER LYRICS /EUROPEAN MUSIC CULTURE
He left on a boat just to follow a dream he had to find
You can't hold a man when he follows a dream that's on his mind

I see a boat on the river, it's sailing away
Down to the ocean, where to I can't say
Boat on the river, it's sailing away
Down to the ocean, where to I can't say

I waited for him such a very long time, don't know what for
'Cause I should have known when he left on the boat, we meet no more

I see a boat on the river, it's sailing away
Down to the ocean, where to I can't say
Boat on the river, it's sailing away
Down to the ocean, where to I can't say

There were people who came and said it's really a shame
Why did he take off to follow just a dream?
But I guess they were wrong, in life you're sailing along
And things don't turn out as simple as they seem

I see a boat on the river, it's sailing away
Down to the ocean, where to I can't say
I see a boat on the river, you're bound for the sea
If you should find him, please greet him from me

Boat on the river
