Sittin' by myself I watch the rain fall in the river
The one they call the Tennessee
Somewhere in the west you see the sun wake up a mountain baby
Do you ever think of me

Are you still like I remember you
Is there wonder in your eyes
Did you find what you went lookin' for
Under Wyoming mountain skies

Three summers back from yesterday I watched you drive away
Promised you'd be here again by fall
Winter came and the letters stopped, I got to thinkin'
Was returning even in your plans at all

Repeat Chorus:

I know you can't hear me askin'
All these questions of you now
I'm just talkin' to the river
Don't know why but it seems to help somehow

Thought I might come out sometime, jut to see you
Guess I was afraid of what I'd find
Think I'll stay right here by this old river
Daydreaming back when you were mine

That way you'll stay like I remember you
I'll always see the wonder in your eyes
And it won't matter what you found out there
Under Wyoming mountain skies

Wish I could be there with you now
Under Wyoming mountain skies
