Black River deep and still
In the summer sun
A promise rise she will
Walk on before she runs

The evening dream awakes
Honeysuckle sweet
By day the levee breaks
Surround her like a wreath

I'm not in love
(Black River deep and still
In the summer sun)
I'm not in love
(a promise rise she will
Walk on before she runs)

She tried to hold the moon
Still the river rose
Autumn yellow wanes to soon
Goodbye to all she knows

I'm not in love
(Black River deep and still
In the summer sun)
I'm not in love
(a promise rise she will
Walk on before she runs)
