Broad Old River - Pete Seeger

    Come along with me
    Upon this broad old river.
    Come along with me
    Upon this broad old river.
    We will see what we can do.
    For when we work together
    In all kinds of weather
    There's no telling what the power of the people and the river can do.

    Don't you be scared
    Upon this broad old river
    Don't you be scared
    Upon this broad old river
    Rockin'and rollin'
    On all those waves
    For when we work together
    In all kinds of weather
    No matter how the wind's gonna blow We can be saved.

    Don'tcha give up hope
    Upon this broad old river
    Don'tcha give up hope
    Upon this broad old river
    Sooner or later
    The tide will turn
    And when we work together
    In all kinds of weather
    The teachers and the students They both will learn.

    We're gonna learn the ropes
    Out on this broad old river
    We're gonna learn the ropes
    Out on this broad old river
    Bowline and longsplice
    Clive hitch and square
    And when we work together
    In all kinds of weather
    Like a lotta little fibers of rope we're gonna hang in there.

    Come for a swim
    Into this broad old river
    Come for a swim
    Into this broad old river
    Bring the family down
    To the river shore
    You can see winning
    Just by going swimming
    You can see what we mean 'cause it's cleaner than it was before.
