"Abbie's Song" as written by and Joe Purdy.
Oh river, with your water so clear
I can see straight to the bottom where you stand so still
Oh river, with this beauty you found
And you act just like a mirror with your sun sinking down
Yeah, you act just like a mirror with your sun sinking down

I'm so selfish
Won't you forgive me my haste
But I hope you last forever
At least all of my days

Oh river, with your eyes so green
Well, I think they are the prettiest that I have ever seen
Oh river, with your waters so calm
And I will not forget you wherever I roam
No, I will not forget you wherever I roam

I'm so selfish
Won't you forgive me my haste
But I hope you last forever
At least all of my days
At least all of my days

So I will drink the whiskey
And you will drink the rain
At least all of my days
At least all of my days
At least all of my days
