Sailing Down My Golden River Sailing down my golden river, Sun and water all my own, Yet I was never alone. Sun and water, old life givers, I'll have them where e'er I roam, And I was not far from home. Sunlight glancing on the water, Life and death are all my own, Yet I was never alone. Life to raise my sons and daughters, Golden sparkles in the foam, And I was not far from home. Sailing down this winding highway, Travelers from near and far, Yet I was never alone. Exploring all the little by-ways, Sighting all the distant stars, And I was not far from home. ______________________________________ Words & music by Pete Seeger, 1971, in support of his work with the sloop Clearwater on the Hudson River.
