Last of the Reasons

She's a mighty big river, The Humber, my friend
When she's wild she's the devil, when she's calm she's a friend
And when the silvers are running and I'm there all alone
She's the last of the reasons I keep going home

I sit in the darkness just below the big falls
And I stare at the heavens and I talk to my god
I put my hand in her waters, she cleanses my soul
She's the last of the reasons I keep going home

I left home a gypsy and I seen it all
The good and the bad, the short and the tall
Money can't buy me but the big falls I know
Is the last of the reasons I keep going home

When I'm somewhere or nowhere I dream of the falls
Where I fished from her waters with my friend Smokey Ball
I don't have to tell him, when he sees me he knows
She's the last of the reasons I keep going home

When I die toss my ashes on the waters I love
Where I fished for the silvers and talked to my god
Let the roar of the big falls speak out in my soul
She's the last of the reasons I keep going home

I left home a gypsy and I seen it all
The good and the bad, the short and the tall
Money can't buy me but the big falls I know
Is the last of the reasons I keep going home
