Joni Mitchell — I Wish I Had A River lyrics

It's coming near Christmas, they're cuttin down trees
They're puttin up reindeer and singing songs of joy and peace.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

It don't snow here, it stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And I'm gonna quit this crazy scene.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I could teach my feet to fly

Oh, I wish I had a river, I could skate away on
I made my baby cry.

He tried hard to help me, he put me at ease
He loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle, I'm selfish, and I'm sad
I went and lost the best baby I ever had.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I could teach my feet to fly

Oh, I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye.

It's coming near Christmas, they're cuttin down trees
They're puttin up reindeer and singing song of joy and peace.

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
