(John Pennell)
I've lived a life full of sorrow
With nowhere to run or to hide
Happiness you'll see is borrowed
All I want is you by my side.
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.
--- Instrumental ---
You can spend all your time a crying
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.
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.
Gentle river bring him back to me...
