Rivers That Flow
© 2019 Lyrics & Music by Bob Bentley

180bpm

Key: F

Verse
When I went walking with you
We'd always stop now and then
I'd steal a kiss maybe two
Then we'd go walking on again

Chorus
Hand in hand we will go
Never doubting our way
Following rivers that flow
On and on for the rest of our days

Verse 3
I had to work to win your heart
To get my love into your soul
It wasn't easy, to make a start
But then our love just took control

Chorus
Hand in hand we will go
Never doubting our way
Following rivers that flow
On and on for the rest of our days

Bridge
I knew when we first met
You were the best of the best
I could tell then
We'd do well then
Now we've passed every test

Chorus
Hand in hand we will go
Never doubting our way
Following rivers that flow
On and on for the rest of our days

Verse
We head towards our destiny
Whatever dice we may throw
We'll be as one, that's you and me
Forever following that river flow


Chorus
Hand in hand we will go
Never doubting our way
Following rivers that flow
On and on for the rest of our days

Hand in hand we will go
Never doubting our way
Following rivers that flow
On and on for the rest of our days
On and on 'til the rest of our days

a very traditional country vibe i enjoyed

Quite simply , a lovely listen . Ticks over nicely from start to finish .

Really lovely job on this. Good arrangement and players, easy, conversational lyrics, upbeat, happy message - very enjoyable.
I heard a Willie Nelson vibe.
I particularly liked the call/response idea on the last chorus, and the bridge delivers a nice change before heading back into the hook.

Nice feel good, nostalgic kind of song. I especially liked the vocal harmonies in the chorus. Nice little rift at very end also. Well produced. Lyrics perfectly audible and good stuff from the instrumentation which did not drown out any lyrics. I like the overall feel and vibe of the song very much.

Nice instrumentation, lyrics and hook.

Nice Tune, Bob, sure enjoyed listening to your sweet love song. Keep the good stuff coming! Your friend in Florida...oops Delaware! Mrs. Kate

Wonderful work like usual!!! Congratulations Bob!

Great, Bob! Reminds me of Byrds / McGuinn, even a little Dylan! Love it...very listenable!

I loved the whole feel. It brought me back to the 70s and 80s, with the tambourine, especially. Great song. Great production.
