The River Lyrics

growin up, it was tough
we were glad for what little we had
i saw my share of old fair mississippi
dirt road and confederate flags
everyday my father would tell me
"son, run and don't never come back"
that's where i left my girl
that's where my heart is at, and ohh...

[chorus]
i held my breath when they dipped my head
then i came up shiy and new
found out about love in the back of my impala
where they layed my grandfather to
down by the river where black folks
gather after sunday service is threw
down by the river runs to the ocean
i'll be runnin' right back to you

I got along, i'm movin' on
i've bandaged the scars up well
i think of then i seem to wait for
a card or a letter in the mail
i walk the beach with sand in my feet
i place my ear up to a shell
i wonder if you miss me to
cuz' i've been longing to get to you
i'm sick of starrin' out my window sill
i'm packin' my bags, i said i'm going back home
to the place where i belong
the river
and if she's there when i get there
i'm never gonna leave her again
you see,she stole my heart
down by the river

[chorus]

so i'm packin' up my suitcase
bought me a one-way fare
i'm leaving everything behind me
but in my heart i always care
and i'll still be right there
thank you baby
cuz nothin' can replace that part in my life, and...

[chorus]
