Subject: Lyr Add: Susquehanna
I asked for help in finding some of the lyrics for this and one of the people who helped asked would I post them when I got them all so .... here they are!!Gorgeous song.


Susquehanna

Of late as I did travel my heart filled with despair
I came upon a wondrous sight that drove away my care
Where glittering waters glide and magic filled the air
Down by the Susquehanna and the longer Delaware

Of where and how I do not know and why I do not care
From now until forever more my soul shall wander there
By flood and field and sunlit hill by wood and meadow fair
Down by the Susquehanna and the longer Delaware

I think and hope and dream no more the dreams of other where
Of things that were and might have been this man has ceased to care
For I have grieved too long and too deep the lotus in the air
Down by the Susquehanna and the longer Delaware

Of late as I did travel my heart filled with despair
I came upon a wondrous sight that drove away my care
Where glittering waters glide and magic filled the air
Down by the Susquehanna and the longer Delaware
Yes down by the Susquehanna and the longer Delaware
