~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

VERSE 1
They sat near one another at the water's edge
I'll say they because we is too hard to say
And he told her what he'd come so far to tell her
With tears in her eyes she said it can't be that way
He felt like his wells were dried

CHORUS
And I left the ring down at the riverside

VERSE 2
He sat staring at the water for a long time leaning on his hand
He was going through the things that he was wondering
The air was fairly still like the calm before the storm
No one would have guessed the rain there was no distant thundering
He still felt a long ways away inside

CHORUS
And I left the ring down at the riverside

BRIDGE
Should I tell them how he cried
Should I tell them how you held me my never-bride

CHORUS
And how I left the ring down at the riverside
The riverside

TAG
One like where believers stood for John to baptize them
I'm going down to die but I'll be coming up alive then
I'm going down to die but He'll bring me up alive then
