I'm a going down down down to the river
And there ain't nobody gonna have to hold my hand
I'm a going down down down to the river
Gonna bury my troubles in the river bottom sand

You said goodbye to me this morning and slowly walked out of my life
I don't know how I'll live without you I only know I've gotta try

I'm a going down down down to the river
And there ain't nobody gonna have to hold my hand
I'm a going down down down to the river
Gonna bury my troubles in the river bottom sand

The telephone has started ringing friends call to see if it is true
I don't know words to say it's over I only know that I love you

I'm a going down down down to the river
And there ain't nobody gonna have to hold my hand
I'm a going down down down to the river
Gonna bury my troubles in the river bottom sand
