The Water Is Wise

The Water Is Wise - Tim O’Brien and Sarah Jarosz / No Bad Ham Music / ASCAP / SoRaw Music / BMI

Walking along the banks of a river
Starts out narrow and ends up so wide
Somewhere along you will find the right step-stones
Sooner or later you’ll cross to the other side

Chorus:
River starts way up in the mountains
Slowly falls all the way to the sea
In between so much twisting and turning
Winding its way until it runs free

I don’t know where I’m going but I know how I’ll get there
I’ll follow the laughing water all the way down
I’ll build me a boat and I’ll float down the middle
Just let the current take me where I’m bound

Chorus

River starts way up in the mountains
Slowly falls all the way to the sea
In between so much twisting and turning
Winding its way until it runs free

Chorus

I left a friend back there on the mountain
Made a new friend on this long and winding stream
The water is wise so just let it take you
Just let it take you into your dream

When I was younger I asked lots of questions
I asked and I asked but no one seemed to hear
But I was the one who should have been listening
Now I know I have nothing to fear

River starts way up in the mountains
Slowly falls all the way to the sea
In between so much twisting and turning
Winding its way until is runs free
