8-beat intro.  Play 4-beats for each cell, reading from left to right.
Oh, my love, my darling, I've hungered for your touch,
A long, lonely time.
Time goes by so slowly, And time can do so much.
Are you still mine?
I need your love, I need your love.
God speed your love to me.
Lonely rivers flow, To the sea, to the sea.
To the open arms of the sea.
Lonely rivers sigh: "Wait for me, wait for me!"
I'll be coming home, Wait for me!
