Don't Cross The River Lyrics

by Garth Brooks

There's a little girl out lying on her own
She's got a broken heart
She's not the kind to keep you down for long
She knows and plays it smart

And if she's coming, she's shown no more
She's heard the whistle blowing from the door
Feels like leaving and she don't know why
Without no bridges she's trapped, so I sigh

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denying living on the side
All your life you were on your own

If you want, you can ride my train
Soon forget the reason that you're leaving
Lose yourself and then sometimes
Maybe even save yourself some grieving, woah, oh

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denying living on the other side
All your life you were on your own

If you want you can ride my train
Soon forget the reason that you're leaving
Lose yourself and then sometimes
Maybe even save yourself some grieving, woah, oh

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denying living on the side
Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denying living on the other side
All your life you were on your own

Don't cross
(No don't cross)
Don't try
(No don't try)

Don't cross
(No don't cross)
Don't try
(No you don't try)
