River Summer Song
By Maya Choy-Sutton - 2008



Listen to the River Summer Song

 

CHORUS
C
I spent my summer on a boat
C
I spent it on a river
C
I took some time to live on a boat
C          G         C
On the Hudson River

VERSE 1
C                       F
I met a sociologist
                                  C
And a doctorate of science
C                          F
I met an anthropologist
C               G         C    
We all made an alliance

VERSE 2
I met the captain and the crew
The vessel was well run
I stayed up way too late each night
And I woke up with the sun

BRIDGE
F
Don’t know what I was doing out there
                                    C
Out on that blazing deck
                                    F
But I took home some memories
C          G         C
And a sunburn on my neck

CHORUS
I spent my summer on a boat
I spent it on a river
I took some time to live on a boat
On the Hudson River

VERSE 3
I learned to find the water’s depth
I learned about legal battles
I learned to expect delicious food
Each time the galley rattled

VERSE 4
I learned a bit about the land
I learned about the sea
I learned about the river there
And what it means to me

CHORUS
I spent my summer on a boat
I spent it on a river
I took some time to live on a boat
On the Hudson River

TAG
I took some time to live on a boat
On the Hudson River
