Let Us Go Down to the River to Dance


Let us go down to the river to dance.
To the river to dance! To the river to dance!
Let us go down to the river to dance.
And there you can be my love.

We can walk Temple Creek ‘till it reaches the stream.
We can walk Temple Creek! We can walk Temple Creek!
We can walk Temple Creek ‘till it reaches the stream.
And there you can be my love.

We can follow the trail, side by side, hand in hand.
Side by side, hand in hand! Side by side, hand in hand!
We can follow the trail, side by side, hand in hand.
And there you can be my love.

We can sit on the bank, pitching pebbles to pools.
We can sit on the bank! We can sit on the bank!
We can sit on the bank, pitching pebbles to pools.
And there you can be my love.

At sunset we kiss, then turn back towards the house.
At sunset we kiss! At sunset we kiss!
At sunset we kiss, then turn back towards the house.
And there you can be my love.

Let us go down to the river to dance.
To the river to dance! To the river to dance!
Let us go down to the river to dance.
And there you can be my love.


To my Mary, my lovely, lovely Valentine. I adore you beyond measure.


Here's hoping that, especially today, you each get to appreciate your own very special one.
And, for the record, she suggested that I could bring along a fly rod.
This time, I think I’ll pass.
