Song will play shortly
This song was inspired by playing by a branch of the River Wey at Waverley Abbey as a child, and imagining that we could build a boat to float downstream to the sea and onwards to unlimited adventures (especially after reading Huckleberry Finn).

When we were children - we used to dream * We’d build a boat someday - we’d follow the stream * And follow the river - to the sea * Huckleberry - is who we’d be
CHORUS: We’d follow the river - to the sea * We’d cross the ocean - sail far away * No distant places - now fill our dreams * Just to dream again - beside that stream
We could be anywhere - be anyone * New lands discovered - battles won * Through woods and meadows - where we’d play * Would last forever - those golden days *
Forgotten music - forgotten rhyme * Passing memories - passing time * So flows the river’s - eternal stream * Carrying far away - our childhood dreams
CHORUS Rpt last line
