Wear Moccasins


I went down to the river, to see how the river flows

I went to see Daniel, ‘cause I was told he knows

He sparkled me with silence and soon enough he softly spoke,

"Wear moccasins in summertime, feel the earth grow."

Chorus

Oooh - it’s a lovely, lovely, lovely life.

I’ve been down to the river, been inside the darkest hole

Sitting by the lakeshore I saw the night sky glow

I gathered up all I could find, and what I found when I got home,

"Wear moccasins in summertime, feel the earth grow."

Chorus

Bridge

And you were meant for me, and I was meant for you . . .

I’m riding down the highway I have a special place to go

Nothing is important and everything is slow

I’m gliding down the mile hill, I hear a friendly voice I know

"Wear moccasins in summertime, feel the earth grow."

Chorus
