lyrics

David Swan river man its Sunday morning 8am
Leaves the house and he rides his bike
To Smiths the bakers on The Tything

Where he breaks the bread into the sack
And freewheels to the waters edge
Where he feeds the swans and the ducks
Sweeps the hedgerows tidies up

Should a bird stray onto the towpath?
David Swan picks it up and he puts it back
We have to keep a close eye on them he says with a knowing laugh

David Swan river man removes the lead shot and
The twisted fishing line
Fromm a cygnet’s wing what a poor little thing
But she’s going to be all right

As the children watch and the fathers explain
And the mothers say be careful please be careful
Cause Swans are wild strong and true
Look how beautiful they are please d o

Should a bird stray onto the towpath?
David Swan picks it up and he puts it back
You have to keep your wits about you
And mind your back you got to mind your back

David Swan river man
River man….

Put your waders on David Swan
You’re the river man
River man..
