THE RIVER
{I WILL BE AT PEACE AGAIN}
MUSIC AND LYRICS
BY
PETER LINK & BABA OLATUNJI

CHILDREN
ROLLIN’ TO THE SEA
COME YE TO THE WATER
LOSE YOURSELF IN ME
NEVER TO GO BACK AGAIN

CHOIR
OMI OMI OMI LENIA
OSHUN OSHUN AWA TORO ALAFIA
OMI OMI OMI LENIA
OSHUN OSHUN AWA TORO ALAFIA

LEAD VOCAL
SUNDAY MORNIN’
WASH IN THE RIVER
STRANGE THINGS FILL THE AIR
RIVER RUN BY AND SMILE AT ME STANDIN’ THERE

AND SO I SMILE RIGHT BACK
AND CALL TO THE RIVER
SING ME UP A LITTLE SONG
RIVER SAYS I DON’T MIND IF YOU SING ALONG

CHILDREN
I BEEN A THOUSAND MILES
SEEN A LOT OF FACES
LEAD VOCAL JOINS
FOR A THOUSAND YEARS
BEEN A LOT OF PLACES WHERE NO MAN HAS GONE
WHERE THERE’S NOTHING BUT THE TRACES OF GOD
AN’ I’M ROLLIN’ ON

CHILDREN
ROLLIN’ TO THE SEA
COME YE TO THE WATER
LOSE YOURSELF IN ME
NEVER TO GO BACK AGAIN

ROLLIN’ TO THE SEA
COME YE TO THE WATER
LOSE YOURSELF IN ME
NEVER TO GO BACK AGAIN

LEAD VOCAL
WISH THAT I COULD BE LIKE THE WATER
ROLLIN’ OVER ME
SEARCHIN’ FOR THE PEACE AT THE RIVER’S END

SOME DAY SOON
WHEN FINALLY THE RIVER’S
ROLLIN’ ROUND THE MOON
I WILL BE AT PEACE AGAIN

(BREAK)

CHOIR
OMI OMI OMI LENIA
OSHUN OSHUN AWA TORO ALAFIA

LEAD VOCAL
GOD HE GIVES
THE POWER TO THE RIVER
RIVER TO THE MAN
IT WAS SO BEFORE THE WORLD BEGAN

LEAD VOCAL
TIME WON’T WAIT
IT FLOWS WITH THE RIVER
DON’T LOOK BACK MY FRIEND
GET ON IN AND GO TO THE RIVER’S END

CHILDREN
MORE THAN A THOUSAND MILES
LEAD VOCAL
ROLLING ON INSIDE YOU
CHOIR
AND A THOUSAND LIES
LEAD VOCAL
TRYING TO DIVIDE YOU WHILE YOU CARRY ON
AND SHE’S ALWAYS THERE TO GUIDE YOU ALONG
STILL RUSHING ON

CHILDREN
ROLLIN’ TO THE SEA
LEAD VOCAL GOSPEL RIFFS
COME YE TO THE WATER
LOSE YOURSELF IN ME
NEVER TO GO BACK AGAIN

ROLLIN’ TO THE SEA
COME YE TO THE WATER
LOSE YOURSELF IN ME
NEVER TO GO BACK AGAIN

CHOIR
WISH THAT I
COULD BE LIKE THE WATER
ROLLIN’ OVER ME
SEARCHIN’ FOR THE PEACE AT THE RIVER’S END

SOME DAY SOON
WHEN FINALLY THE RIVER’S
ROLLIN’ ROUND THE MOON
I WILL BE AT PEACE AGAIN
I WILL BE AT PEACE AGAIN
I WILL BE AT PEACE AGAIN
