Kate Smith – River, Stay Way From My Door lyrics

River, Stay 'Way From My Door
Kate Smith with Guy Lombardo
Words by Mort Dixon/Music by Harry Woods

You keep goin' your way,
I'll keep goin' my way,
River, stay 'way from my door.

I just got a cabin,
You don't need my cabin,
River, stay 'way from my door.

Don't come up any higher,
I'm so all alone,
Leave my bed and my fire
That's all I own.

I ain't breakin' your heart,
Don't start breakin' my heart,
River, stay 'way from my door.

From: "Scott Cavanaugh"
