Subject: Purify My River
From: C. Ham

A song lyric from long ago has been running through my brain:

"Purify my river
Purify my soul
Bring down the angels..."

It was sung by a woman who played in the coffeehouses of Montreal in the 1970's.

Can anyone remind me who the singer and/or songwriter was?

I don't know if this will help; just in case:

Purify My River - Ronney Abramson
Children walk your horses down to the river
When the well hs up and dried
Angels come to bring the sun
But you know Lord how they can cry
I can't deny
The love in your eye

Putify my river
Putify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home
They won't smile done

See the starry midnight see the train
On the railroad line
I've goit my hat don't tell me that
You know it makes me so high inside
I can Rely
On the love in your eye

Putify my river
Putify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home

Putify my river
Putify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home
Putify my river
Putify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home
(Found here. )

Ah... Copy/pasted it but I see a whack of typos in the text. Here it is again with corrections:

Purify My River - Ronney Abramson

Children walk your horses down to the river
When the well has up and dried
Angels come to bring the sun
But you know Lord how they can cry
I can't deny
The love in your eye

Purify my river
Purify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home
They won't smile done

See the starry midnight see the train
On the railroad line
I've got my hat don't tell me that
You know it makes me so high inside
I can rely
On the love in your eye

Purify my river
Purify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home

Purify my river
Purify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home
Purify my river
Purify my soul
Bring down the Angels
From their home

***

Best I can do without knowing the song.

Maeve

Here's Ronney Abramson at Wikipedia. Apparently, she owns a real estate firm in Toronto.
