lyrics

The rivers are high
and soon I’ll be floating
The docks, once secure
are now drifting wood
And the pillars that I stood on
have swept from the bottom
The knots have untied
and the anchor is gone.

So roll on, Allegheny.
Carry my vessel safely forth
For I have no paddle
to steer my raft with
and no line to tie to shore

Old man Noah
sailed through a rainstorm
the sky kept on falling
for forty straight days
And when the ark finally landed
on the outskirts of Johnstown
he petitioned the Lord
for overtime pay

So roll on, Monongahela.
Carry my vessel safely forth
For I have no paddle
to steer my raft with
and no line to tie to shore.

Boats were designed
for traversing waters
They flow with the current
or they fight it with oars
But in even the sturdy
you will be thrown out
if your feet are on the deck
but your hands reach for shore

So roll on, Ohio.
Carry my vessel safely forth
For I have no paddle
to steer my raft with
and no line to tie to shore
