    Only Our Rivers Run Free

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

    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
    Oh, were are you now when we need you?
    What burns were the flame used to be?
    Are you gone like snows of last winter?
    And will only our rivers run free?

    How sweet is life but we're crying
    How mellow the wine but it's dry
    How fragrant the rose but it's dying
    How gentle the breeze but it sighs
    What good is in youth when it's ageing?
    What joy is in eyes that can't see?
    When there's sorrow in sunshine and flowers
    And still only our rivers run free
