I'm trying to find lyrics to a song I"m pretty sure is called "The Bear". It was sang at my mother's funeral and it was a folk song. If anyone knows where I might find the lyrics. I'd be much obliged to hear from you. Thanks. Email is Shodangrl@aol.com

Is it one about standing by a stream in winter, cant go back, food on the other side, danger to cross and, and ends: " he entered in" or something like that? Written by Rick Lee, is that right, 'CAtters?
I've got it on a tape in the car, if that's the one.
Blessings,
Barbara

Great song. Written by Andy May and done by Rick Lee of Natick Massachusetts on his Waterbug CD "There's Talk About A Fence". Bear is about the experience of living--of challenge and the choice to face that challenge honestly. Andy said he first recorded it in 1970. I will copy the lyrics down and if you don't have it by morning I'll send them to you.

I transcribed this from a sound sample:

THE BEAR
Written by Andy May, recorded by Rick Lee on "There's Talk about a Fence"

…The path behind him was thick with ice.
The flood before him could be crossed but would demand a price.
So bear just…

From his album, There's Talk About A Fence, you can listen to it here

BEAR
(Andy May)

When he came to the river
His feet had froze
When he came to the river
Before his eyes the raging flood arose
So Bear just stood there
Shaking his head
The path behind him
Was thick with ice
The flood before him
Could be crossed but would demand a price
So Bear just stood there
Watching instead
His life spun before him
All the things he had done
But standing by the foreign flood
It was as if he hand't done a-one
So Bear just stood there
Shaking his head

He knew his hunger
He knew his thirst
But to get beyond the river
He knew that he would have to cross it first
So Bear stepped forward
And entered in
