One day, all of us, rich and poor, black and white, etc. etc., will walk alone by the black muddy river.
Just arranged this tune today for my band and it brought to my mind a wonderful convergence:
I will walk alone by the black muddy river and sing me a song of my own.
Sometimes we walk alone, sometimes the songs that we hear are just songs of our own.
