The unofficial web site provides the informations of Irish folk singer Cara Dillon
Blue mountain river
from the album 'Cara Dillon'.
written and arranged by Cara Dillon and Sam Lakeman
Cara says "I remember writing Blue mountain river
at the studio in Sheffield. I was in a country mood
'cos I 'd been listening to Nancy Griffith."
Blue mountain river, if only for a while,
Take me to the river, lay down by your side,
The world is full of madness and I find it hard to smile,
I'll sleep within through winter and wait for summertime.
Blue mountain river, comfort me a while,
I 'll follow down the river, follow you til night,
I listen to you whispers, you dance in time to mine,
We'll stay awake together watching silver in the sky.
Blue mountain river, I wanna rest a while,
You're changing my reflection and the seasons in my mind,
Let these days go on forever, I 'll leave in my own time,
Take me where you're going and I 'll be right by your side.
Blue mountain river, I went there for a while,
I listened for an answer and I found it deep inside,
When I'm lost behind the shadows and I wanna run and hide,
My blue mountain river is there right by my side.
