I keep on runnin', baby
I keep on runnin' but I just can't hide, no, I just can't hide
I keep on hurtin', baby
I keep on hurtin' so deep inside, so deep inside

Lord, I need your smile, child, like the one I once knew
Made my grass green and my blue skies blue
Love was a time when two was one
Tell me now, girl, where've all the good times gone

Love, say, I'm gonna cry me a river
Wash my blues all away
I'm gonna cry me a river
Girl, you're my riverboat, oh yeah
Baby, take me away

I'm reachin' out my hand
Won't you please help me to my feet once again, oh, once again
Tears fallin' like rain
Lord, it's a time when everybody needs a friend
Now girl, where've you been, yeah

Lord, I need your smile, child, like the one I once knew
Made my grass green and my blue skies blue
Love was a time when two was one
Tell me now, girl, where've all the good times gone, yeah

Girl, say, I'm gonna cry me a river
Wash my blues all away
I'm gonna cry me a river
Girl, you're my riverboat, oh yeah
Baby, take me away, oh, take away, child

Oh no, I feel I'm gonna cry me a river
Wash my blues all away
I'm gonna cry me a river
Love, wash my blues all away

I'm gonna cry me a river
Wash my blues all away
I'm gonna cry me a river
Girl, you're my riverboat, oh yeah
Baby, come take me away
