Subject: RE: Lyr Req: River and the Road (Archie Fisher)
Hello, Phil. You're welcome. Thanks for posting. The line is "Back to where you made the turn that showed you didn't need me." The speaker and the person to whom he is speaking have parted ways.

I asked Archie, and these words are from him directly. I'm always glad to transcribe lyrics on Mudcat, but I very much prefer to check my transcriptions with the author or other accurate source when possible. Fortunately, I was able to verify this one fairly promptly.

I agree that it's a great recording- and I do mean "great". So many really achingly lovely songs- some from Archie's pen, others from equally skilled songmakers!
