"River" by Joni Mitchell (cover)


▶️ Watch on 3Speak


One of my favourite Joni songs. Christmas-ish. Mostly Canadian melancholic.

An old open mic entry from when it was still over at Steemit (as you'll hear).

I just announced that I am heading into the studio out here in LA to produce a Joni album featuring a couple of covers as well as originals of mine about our common home in Saskatchewan, Canada.

I'm going to be writing a book about some of it as well and releasing it as a package some time in the new year.

Not sure if this song will make the album cut but wanted to share it here with the Hive world.

Lyrics below of a great song.

"River"

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene
I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Whoa I wish I had a river I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees
Oh, I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It's coming on Christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
Singing songs of joy and peace
I wish I had a river I could skate away on
