I've lived a life full of sorrow
With no where to run or to hide
Happiness you'll see is borrowed
All I want is you by my side

[Chorus:]
Gentle river take me away
To the time of happier days
All I need is love and company
Gentle river bring him back to me

You can spend all your time a'cryin
Listen here I don't need your sympathy
Cause I've made my life to live it
All I need is you here with me...

[Chorus:]

Gentle river bring em' back to me
