Song Lyric Sunday | “Where Peaceful Waters Flow” – Gladys Knight & the Pips

Song Lyric Sunday was created by Helen Vahdati from This Thing Called Life One Word at a Time and author Jim Adams from A Unique Title For Me is our current guest host. For complete rules or to join in the fun, click here.

This week’s theme is  laughter.

~~~~~~~~~~

I went my own way with the theme this week and stretched out laughter to smile.

Where Peaceful Waters Flow is from Imagination, the eleventh studio album of mega superstar R & B group, Gladys Knight & the Pips. The moderately successful adult contemporary hit didn’t reach the heights of the album’s Midnight Train to Georgia or Best Thing That Ever Happened to Me, but it still receives airplay today–forty-five years after it’s release.

In the chorus of the song of love and support, she sings, “Come take my hand and walk with me awhile, let me teach you how to smile,” knowing that bringing a smile to his face will help heal his soul… and heart.

Enjoy!

Where Peaceful Waters Flow

(Come and walk with me)
(We can go where peaceful waters flow)

If loneliness surrounds you
And rain clouds always hang around you
And wakin’ up each day gets you down (Gets you down, gets you down)
And if the life that you’re leading
Seems hollow, then maybe what you’re needing
Is someone to turn your world around

(Take my hand) Come take my hand and walk with me (And walk awhile)
(Let me teach you how to smile) Let me teach you how to smile
(And Ill show you skies ) And Ill show you skies where gentle breezes blow
(Where breezes, gentle breezes blow) Yeah, hey

And Ill take you where peaceful waters flow (Peaceful waters flow)
If you let me Ill take you where peaceful waters flow
(Come and walk with me) Mmm, hmm
(We can go where peaceful waters flow)

Now if the sunshine hurts your eyes, boy
Then its time for you to realize, boy
Beyond this moment there’s
A better day (Better day), mmm, hmm (Better day)

And if you let me
Ill guide you, mmm
Ill always be there, right there beside you
Reaching every step of your way

(Come take my hand and walk) Come take my hand and walk with me awhile
(And walk awhile) Yeah, hey, hey
(Let me teach you how to smile ) Let me teach you how to smile
And Ill show you skies (Ill show you skies ) where gentle breezes blow
(Where breezes, gentle breezes blow) Hey, yeah, hey, hey, hey

And Ill take you where peaceful waters flow (Peaceful waters flow)
Hey, hey, if you trust me, Ill take you there where peaceful waters flow
(Come and walk with me) Mmm…hmm…
(We can go where peaceful waters flow)
