One For The Road

If you know, if you know
Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Well if you know a lover's will,
tell me if you can
Thought it was a woman and I
thought it was a man

One for the road
One for the river flowing
Or is it one for the four strong winds
that keep on blowing me away

I met her on a fair day,
her face was full of smiles
She helped me over ditches
and she helped me over styles

One for the road
One for the river flowing
Or is it one for the four strong winds
that keep on blowing me away

Sweet, sweet, sweet smile
Sweet, sweet smile
Sweet smile
The circle of your smile

One date I'm by the seaside
I decided to despair
I knew that I could never decide
to leave my darling there

One for the road
One for the river flowing
Or is it one for the four strong winds
that keep on blowing me away

I don't believe I'll ever change
It isn't in my style
I only want to live within the
circle of your smile

One for the road
One for the river flowing
Or is it one for the four strong winds
that keep on blowing me away

Sweet, sweet, sweet smile
Sweet, sweet smile
Sweet smile
The circle of your smile

Tell me, tell me, tell me, tell me
Is it one for the road
One for the river flowing
Or is it one for the four strong winds
that keep on blowing me away

Blowing me away
Please let me live everyday within the circle of your smile
Your sweet, sweet, sweet, sweet smile
Sweet, sweet smile
Sweet smile
The circle of your smile
