I've been well across the country
And I've stayed in every town
You see, I'm trying to find my baby
And he ain't nowhere around
Can you understand?

You know which way I'm headin'
If my baby can't be found, oh, yeah
Well, I spoke to the river
And the river, the river spoke back to me
It said, "Oh, you look so lonely
And so much full of misery
Yes, you do now
If you can't find your baby
Come on, girl, and make your home with me
Oh, yeah"

I don't want to leave him
No, I know, I know he's still alive
And someday, I'm going to find him
And he's gonna take me for a ride
Yes, he will now
And then we'll live forever and ever and ever
Forever and ever among the tides
Oh, yes, we will
Just in case I don't find him
I'm gonna take that river's invitation
River's invitation

Oh, oh, the river
Oh, oh, the river
Oh, the river, yeah
Oh, river's invitation
Yeah, the river
