River To Share


I borrowed your river,
I hope you don't care
but the river is big enough
for all of us to share.

A lot of little homes
fit along the shore
a lot of little boats
float in the river.

See, we can all share the river;
I can just move my trailer by our home
and we can all go where the river goes
or maybe we'll all just live on boats.

'Cause there's plenty of room for everyone
and when the summer gets nice we can bask in the sun
or swing in a hammock like we don't have a care
because we love our river, our river to share.

Yeah, we don't mind sharing this river, our home
'cause we're all family, don't you know?
And this river has given us all happiness
so let's share our river, like friends share a kiss.

Because we're family, don't you know?
And this river will always be all of our home.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

This poem is dedicated to Alan Jackson, who first got me to love the Chattahoochee (but I'm sure he doesn't mind sharing it) and who first got me into Country music. Thanks for the blessing.
