Moon Riv -er, wid -er than a mile,
I'm cross -in' you in style some day.
Old dream mak -er, you heart break -er,
Wher -ev -er you're go -in', I'm go -in' your way.
Two drift -ers, off to see the world,
There's such a lot of world to see.
We're aft -er the same rain -bow's end,
Wait -in' 'round the bend, my Huck -le -ber -ry friend,
Moon Riv -er and me.
