    Only our rivers run free Empty Only our rivers run free

    When apples still grow in November
    When blossoms still bloom on each tree
    When leaves are still green in December
    It's then that our land will be free
    I've wandered the hills and valleys
    And still through my sorrow I see
    A land that has never known freedom
    And only her rivers run free.

    2. I drink to the death of her manhood
    Those men who'd rather have died
    Than to live in the cold chains of bondage
    To bring back their rights were denied
    But where are you now that we need you?
    What burns where the flame used to be?
    Are you gone like the snow of last winter?
    And still only our rivers run free.

    3. How sweet is life, but we're dying
    How mellow the wine, but we're dry
    How fragrant the rose, but it's dying
    How gentle the wind but it sighs
    What good is in youth when it's aging?
    What joys are in eyes that can't see?
    When there's sorrow in sunshine and flowers
    And still only our rivers run free.
