Lost my watch, watch and chain, but time's not lost
This time we walk together beside the slow black river
Water-walking over mud you whisper something
Something good in my ear, so I stop so I can hear:

"Darling, I'm the one to blame, I threw your watch and chain
To where I don't know, inside the tall grass meadow
You'll forget, forget in time, remember this:
Your hand in mine forever, beside the slow black river"

Lost my watch, watch and chain, to her today
But time it has no meaning when her and me are walking
Darling, I'm the one to blame, I love you still
And timeless now forever together by the river

    General Commenti think it might be about how he's with his wife and he's caught up with everything around him such as work and other things and doesn't take time to enjoy life and the company of his best friend and wife. and in the last phrase or stanza or whatever he realizes what his wife's been telling him and he makes his own decision to throw away his worries.
