Another rewrite................. Still channging and re arranging trying to get ready for Friday night open mic.

Up River

One more long week has said goodbye
now the weekends ours
but it's time that flies
So baby come up river with me

So let's go up the river girl
I want to take you on that river girl
come on  - way up river with me
they'll be a full moon in the sky tonight
so we can drift back dreaming on the tide
oh baby come up river with me

The kids are at your momma's
and they won't be back tonight
the planets are all aligned
it's never felt so right

We can make love in the moonlight
as we take that midnight ride
let's not miss out on the chance
don't let it pass us by

So let's go up the river girl
I want to take you on that river girl
come on  - way up river with me
they'll be a full moon in the sky tonight

so we can drift back dreaming on the tide
oh baby come up river with me


You can pack a picnic lunch
and I'll ice down some drinks
then hook the boat up to the truck
aw' honey what ya think?

We can take some fishing poles
but if the fish don't bite
we'll spread a blanket on the deck
and count stars in the sky

So let's go up the river girl
I want to take you on that river girl
come on  - way up river with me
they'll be a full moon in the sky tonight
so we can drift back dreaming on the tide
oh baby come up river with me


Let's go up the river girl
I want to take you on that river girl
come on  - way up river with me
they'll be a full moon in the sky tonight
so we can drift back dreaming on the tide
oh baby come up river with me

I think you got  it , I love where you are going with this and it reads good , I want to hear it when its put to music, I couldn`t get it to play on your link  , I could only get your other songs, so i gave them a listen and I liked them all/ Good luck on this one as I`m a old river person( lived on the Ky river most of my life) sort of a been  there, done that sort of thing. Nothin like being around the water that I don`t love/ Granny
