I'm goin' down to the river and drown myself
Well, I'm goin' down to the river and drown myself
Oh babe, oh, I'm goin' down yes and turn myself in
'Cause my baby lovin' someone else

Now you know why
I'm goin' down to the river and drown myself

I'm sick and tired of this misery
Down in my heart, way down in my heart
I'm sick and tired of this misery
Down in my heart, oh Lord

Well, I'm sick and tired of this misery
Lord have mercy, have mercy on me
I'm sick and tired of this misery
Down in my heart

So goodbye baby
(Bye baby)
Well, I got to go, so please don't cry
'Cause it's too late to cry

Bye-bye baby, well, I got to go
So please don't cry, oh no
Oh, bye-bye baby, I've got to go
That's why I called you, just to let you know
I'm goin' down to the river and drown myself
