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
