My love is like a river
She just keeps on rolling along

No man ever can keep that girl
From moving on
Easy as she comes by
Easy as she's gone

Get down real down
Crying how I love that girl
She's as free as heaven on a breeze

Lay my burden down
Down by the river's edge
There I learned to let my lover be

And don't you know I'd hold you (hold you, oh yeah)
If I could find a way (oh yeah, oh yeah)
If I could only catch you (oh catch you, oh yeah)
If only you would stay (stay, stay)

And don't you know I want you (want you, want you)
Baby, baby, baby, baby stay (stay, yeah)
If I could only love you (love me)
But girl you keep on running away
Running away, running away
Oh no (yeah)

My love is like a river
