Down To The River Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

I found you in a Louisiana roadside park
Beat up, broke down no place left to turn
I took you back to Texas under a harvest moon
We found a little place to call our own
We shared all the hopes and dreams of our younger years
Married at the tender age of twenty-one
Rollin' down the highways, dirt roads and the byways
You liked to drive so I would go shotgun

We'd go down to the river
Where I could hold your body close to mine
We'd listen to the rhythm
Of that old water rollin
You can stay with me until the morning light

Somewhere through the year somebody turned your head
And has taken my sweet love so far from me
Yeah he swept you off to Boulder
Where the air it gets much colder
Than this southern boy would ever like to see
I think of calling you on lonely nights
When being alone gets the best of me
Yeah but this here whiskey bottle
Will take me to a place
Where you and I will always be

We'd go down to the river
Where I could hold your body close to mine
We'd listen to the rhythm
Of that old water rollin
You can stay with me until the morning light

When you came back home everybody said I was a fool
'Cause I took you back without a word to say
But I couldn't go on living thinkin' about all I was missin'
And I don't give a damn about what those people say

We'd go down to the river
Where I could hold your body close to mine
We'd listen to the rhythm
Of that old water rollin
You can stay with me until the morning light
