Lyrics/Notes

D F#m G D
It's a long winding way through the Mad River Valley
D Bm A
Through the forest and mountains green
D F#m G D
To the cabin we shared by the wild running river
D A G D
The most perfect I've ever seen

I'll live my life on the banks of the water,
singing my song to you
And all through my days I'll remember you always,
I never knew love so true

It's a tangled old path through the thick briars and brambles
Down to where the wild roses bloom
They open their hearts in the heat of the summer
And freeze 'neath the silver moon

I'll live our life on the banks of the water,
singing my song to you
All through my days I'll remember you always
I never knew love like you

It's a tumbling run down the Bear Creek Canyon
Through the rock and the mountain sage
It's a trickling stream in the frozen winter
Running strong when the spring waters rain

I'll live my life on the banks of the water,
singing my song to you
And all through my days I'll remember you always
I never knew love so true

I'll live my life on the banks of the water,
singing my song to you
And all through my days I'll remember you always
I never knew love like you
