about

'Rivertown' is a semi-autobiographical track about growing up along the banks of an iconic river. It is an acoustic tune with a country-folk feel. It is the most 'middle of the road' (MOR) track on the album.

lyrics

Rivertown

Words and music © Tim Hudspith, 1988


A rivertown with soil red
And weeping willows 'side the river's edge
Underneath the bridge we'd talk
Beside the river's edge we'd walk

In muddy water we did dive
In a disused quarry we did climb
On summer days we'd never rest
Now circumstances would suggest

We followed the river down to the sea
Together washed away we were longing to be free
Longing to be free

Where did you go and how have you been?
What are your thoughts and what have you seen?
Did you stay on the shore or did you decide
To leave the land and into the water dive?

We followed the river down to the sea
Together washed away we were longing to be free
Longing to be free

We followed the river down to the sea
Together washed away we were longing to be free
Longing to be free
