The bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side

When I awake this a morning
The rain was a pouring down
I was gonna wed the little river girl
Just over the bridge across town

Now I'm a runnin' up and down the river
And my nerves are drivin' me wild
Because the bridge washed out I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side

Rain, oh, rain stop a fallin'
Dark clouds hurry from the sky
The preacher and my bride is a-waitin'
And the weddin' bells are starting to chime

I can't kiss and hold her
And it's driving me out of my mind
The bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side

Now I got one foot in the water
The other foot solid on the ground
When I try to swim that ragin' ol' river
I know if I try I'd drown

There's not a boat around me
They walked on out with the tide
And the bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side

Rain, oh, rain stop a fallin'
Dark clouds hurry from the sky
The preacher and my bride is a-waitin'
And the weddin' bells are starting to chime

The bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side
