When you're sitting by the river,
In your mind you hear a song.
Close your eyes and try to see her,
It's Proud Mary rollin' on.
Let it take you to a time and place
That brings a smile right to your face.

We couldn't see the rain that went
And washed this band away.
How we hoped the music's spirit
Would return again to play.
All we had left were our albums,
But those songs remained our anthems.

Over the horizon, there's a blue moon risin',
Up out from the swamp into the sky.
Take a look and you will know why
Legends just don't die.

Now the music's come full circle,
And it's back where it belongs.
See the crowds of cheering people
Give testimony to their songs.
In the window where it still burns true,
We've kept that candle lit for you.

Over the horizon, there's a blue moon risin',
Up out from the swamp into the sky.
Take a look and you will know why
Legends just don't die.

Now the music's come full circle,
And it's back where it belongs.
See the crowds of cheering people
Give testimony to their songs.
In the window where it still burns true,
We've kept that candle lit for you.
