River of Tears
It's three miles to the river That would carry me away Two miles to the dusty street That I saw you on today It's four miles to my lonely room Where I will hide my face And about half a mile to the downtown bar That I ran from in disgrace Lord how long have I got to keep on running Seven hours seven days or seven years? All I know is since you've been gone I feel like I'm drowning in a river Drowning in a river of tears Drowning in a river Feel like I'm drowning Drowning in a river In three more days, I'll leave this town And disappear without a trace A year from now, maybe settle down Where no one knows my face I wish that I could hold you One more time to ease the pain But my time's run out and I got to go Got to run away again Still I catch myself thinking One day I'll find my way back here You'll save me from drowning Drowning in a river Drowning in a river of tears Drowning in a river Feels like I'm drowning Drowning in the river Oh, how long must this go on? Drowning in a river Drowning in a river of tears
