Take Me to the River Lyrics

by Eva Cassidy

I dont know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through?
Stole my money, my cigarettes
I havent seen the worst of it yet

I wanna know boy, wont you tell me
Tell me, how can I stay here with you?

Wont you take me to the river?
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground, yeah

I dont know why you treat me so bad
After all the good times that weve had?
Youre sixteen candles that burn on my wall
Now whos the biggest fool of us all

I wanna know, wont you tell me
Tell me, how can I stay here with you?

Wont you take me to the river?
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground, yeah

Hold me, squeeze me, love me
And you can tease me
Till I cant take it no more
Oh yeah, yeah, yeah

I dont know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through?
Love is a notion I cant forget
My sweet sixteen, I would never regret

I wanna know, wont you tell me
Tell me, how can I stay here with you?

Wont you take me to the river?
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground, yeah

Take me to the river
Wash me down
Wont you take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground, yeah
