I come from down in the valley, where mister when you’re young
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
Me and Mary we met in high school, when she was just seventeen
We’d ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green

We’d go down to the river
And into the river we’d dive
Oh down to the river we’d ride

Then I got Mary pregnant, and man that was all she wrote
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse
And the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
No flowers no wedding dress

That night we went down to the river
And into the river we’d dive
Oh down to the river we did ride

I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
But lately there ain’t been much work on account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
Well mister they vanished right into the air
Now I just act like I don’t remember, Mary acts like she don’t care

But I remember us riding in my brother’s car
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
At night on them banks I’d lie awake
And pull her close just to feel each breath she’d take
Now those memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it don’t come true, or is it something worse
That sends me down to the river, though I know the river is dry
That sends me down to the river tonight
Down to the river, my baby and I
Oh down to the river we ride

Prevod pesme

Reka

Ja sam iz doline, gde, gospodine, kad si mlad
uče te da budeš kao tvoj otac
Ja i Meri upoznali smo se u srednjoj školi, kad imala je samo sedamnaest
Mi smo se vozali iz te doline tamo gde su polja zelena

Išli smo dole do reke
I u reci ronili
Oh, dole do reke, mi smo se vozali

Onda je Meri zatrudnela i, čoveče, to je bilo sve što je napisala
A za moj devetnaesti rođendan dobio sam radnu knjižicu i venčano odelo
Otišli smo do matičara
I on je svemu stao na kraj
Bez osmeha na dan venčanja, bez šetnje do oltara
Bez cveća, bez venčanice

Te smo se noći odvezli do reke
I u reku zaronili
Oh dole do reke, zaista smo se odvezli

Dobio sam posao na građevini za Johnstown kompaniju
Ali u poslednje vreme nema mnogo posla zbog ekonomske situacije
Sada sve ono što je nekad važno bilo
E pa, druže, sve je to isparilo
Sada se samo pravim da se ne sećam, Meri se pravi da joj nije stalo

Ali ja se sećam kako smo se vozili bratovim kolima
Njenog tela pocrnelog i mokrog, dole kod jezera
Noću, na tim obalama, ja sam budan ležao
I privlačio je k sebi, samo da bih svaki njen udah čuo
Sada me te uspomene progone, kao neka kletva me progone
Da li je san laž ako se ne obistini, ili je nešto još gore
Što me šalje dole do reke, iako znam da ona presušila je
Što me šalje dole do reke, večeras
Dole do reke, moja draga i ja
Oh dole do reke vozamo se ona i ja
