The Winding Stream

Lyrics Shared By: Jennifer

Carlene Carter:
Oh, give to me a winding stream
It must not be too wide
Where waving leaves from maple trees
Do meet from either side
The water must be deep enough
To float a small canoe
With no one else but you


Carlene, June Carter, Johnny Cash:
Do not disturb my waking dream
The splendor of that winding stream
Flower in my canoe, his eyes they look me through
That someone there with golden hair
Is very much like you


Carlene:
The sparkling trout beneath the bank
Does leave his hiding place
Kingfisher from the bough above
So eager to give chase
The spreading branches over head
The sunlight peeping through
Reminding me of you

All:
Do not disturb my waking dream
The splendor of that winding stream
Flower in my canoe, his eyes they look me through
That someone there with golden hair
Is very much like you
