Oh, the river run down but the stream ran dry
Big strong man don't ever cry
Just stands to watch his love go by
Oh, the river ran down but the stream ran dry

Yes, he loved a woman but he let her get away
Didn't ever think he'd regret that day
The laugh and the smile, he'd still play the game
But he knew that day would never by the same

Oh, the river run down but the stream ran dry
Big strong man don't ever cry
Just stands to watch his love go by
Oh, the river ran down but the stream ran dry

There walks a man, he could've had a home
Fine baby children, a woman of his own
He walks all alone, he doesn't have a care
But he keeps on thinking that he sees her everywhere

Oh, the river run down but the stream ran dry
Big strong man don't ever cry
Just stands to watch his love go by
Oh, the river ran down but the stream ran dry
