River

Joni Mitchell

River - Joni Mitchell

It’s coming on Christmas, 
they’re cutting down trees, 
they’re putting up reindeer, 
and singing songs of joy and peace 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don’t snow here 
It stays pretty green 
I’m going to make a lot of money 
Then I’m going to quit this crazy scene 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry 

He tried hard to help me, 
you know, he put me at ease 
and he loved me so naughty, 
made me weak in the knees 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I’m so hard to handle, 
I’m selfish and I’m sad, 
now I’ve gone and lost the best baby 
that I ever had

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It’s coming on christmas 
they’re cutting down trees 
they’re putting up reindeer 
and singing songs of joy and peace 

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
