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
