I See a Boat on the River - Boney M.

Strophe) 

He left on a boat just to follow a dream he had to find 

you can´t hold a man when he follows a dream, that´s on his mind 

 

Refrain) 

I see a boat on the river it´s sailing away

Down to the ocean where to I can´t say

Boat on the river it´s sailing away 

Down to the ocean where to I can´t say  

 

 

 

 Strophe) 

I waited for him such a very long time, don´t know what for 

Cause I should have known when he left on the boat, we´ll meet no more 

 

Refrain) 

I see a boat on the river it´s sailing away

Down to the ocean where to I can´t say

Boat on the river it´s sailing away 

Down to the ocean where to I can´t say  

 

Boat on the river it´s sailing away

Down to the ocean where to I can´t say 

Boat on the river, you´re bound for the sea 

If you should find him please greet him from me 

 

Bridge) 

There were people who came, and said it´s really a shame

Why did he take off to follow just a dream 

But I guess they were wrong in life you´re sailing along 

And things don´t turn out as simple as they seem 

 

Refrain) 

I see a boat on the river it´s sailing away

Down to the ocean where to I can´t say

I see a Boat on the river, you´re bound for the sea 

If you should find him please greet him from me 

 

Boat on the river it´s sailing away

Down to the ocean where to I can´t say 

Boat on the river, you´re bound for the sea 

If you should find him please greet him from me
