Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find my way over
Wandering, I'm lost
As I travel along the white cliffs of dover

Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will that keeps me alive
I've been ripped, washed up for years
And I merely survive because of my pride

And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left me, but she wouldn't say why
Guess I'll just break right down and cry

Many rivers to cross
But just where to begin
I'm playing for time
There have been times I find myself
Thinking of committing some terrible crime

Still this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My girl left me, but she wouldn't say why
Guess I'll just break right down and cry

Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find my way over
Wandering, I am lost
As I travel along the white cliffs of dover

Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will that keeps me alive
I've been ripped, washed up for years
And I merely survive because of my pride
