Skimmin´ stones (down by the river)


Do you remember when we´d go
Away to leave our cares behind?
Oh, down by the river

Those lovin´times and peace of mind
Those memories of summers´ glow
Oh, down by the river

Oh, down by the river
Oh, when we´d go hand in hand
And by the water´s edge we´d stand
Skimmin´ stones, down by the river

Cascadin´ water on the rocks
Made sunlight dance upon your smile
Oh, down by the river

Barefoot and happy as a child
uUpon the bank your shoes and socks
Oh, down by the river

Oh, down by the river
Oh, when we´d go hand in hand
And by the water´s edge we´d stand
Skimmin´ stones, down by the river

I won´t pretend that all our memories are sweet
And in the time we shared we could´ve done much better
But I believe in givin´ love a second chance
Come on let´s make a date and go out
Skimmin´ stones down by the river

Farewell to winter´s weary tale
Let springtime sunshine bring new leaves
Oh, down by the river

So come with me and let´s relive
Make our sweet mem´ries come alive again today
Oh, down by the river

Oh, down by the river
Oh, skimmin´ stones down by the river
