"I Painted My Name" as written by Linford Jerome Detweiler and Richard A. Hordinski....
I painted my name on a bridge today
In black and white and red and grey
You know it's really not far away
From the banks of the river
Where the president used to play
I put it up high above the rocks below
It's sheltered from the wind and the rain and snow
You know the bridge where we used to go
Our childish trolls and freaks and giant demons
Sunday I hope you might come by
On a big white boat with the sails up high
Sunday I hope that you'll be true
To all it is I see in you
Yes strange enough I'm still in love with you
And so it seems there's work to do
I've got my bow and arrow and a barlow blade
Come dawn I want to ride in your brigade
Sunday I hope you might come by
On a big white horse in the big white sky
Sunday I know we'll reconcile
Down by the river we'll dream awhile
Down by the river we'll sing awhile
Down by the river we'll play awhile
Down by the river we'll cry awhile
Down by the river we'll dance awhile
Down by the river just you and I
