We spent all night down by the riverside
Laughin' at nothing and talking too much
And the moonlight was so bright in your eyes
Before I knew it, I was falling in love
It was too cold to swim so we just lay there
On the bank 'til the break of day
Though we never went in the water
We were swept away
And the river rolled
And the night got cold
But you held me close
And you warmed my soul
We spent all night down by the riverside
Wonderin' how it happened so fast
And it sure did take us by surprise
When that mornin' sun came up at last
It was too cold to swim so we just lay there
On the bank 'til the break of day
Though we never went in the water
We were swept away
Chorus
And the river rolled
And the night got cold
But you held me close
And you warmed my soul
Repeat chorus
We spent all night down by the riverside
It was too cold to swim so we just lay there
On the bank 'til the break of day
Though we never went in the water
We were swept away
Repeat chorus
Repeat chorus
We spent all night down by the riverside
