Sittin' in the shade at Johnson's Creek
We carved our names in an old oak tree
Dangled our toes in the cold cold stream
Got lost in the kiss of the georgia heat

We waded in it when we were kids
Roll one day and we'd jump in
And ride this thing as far as it went

'Cause love's like a river flowin'
Takes you wherever it's goin'
Girl, I ain't lettin' go
Hold on, the water gets crazy
So let's you and me baby
Ride this thing into the setting sun
Let the river run

In the heat of the summer we're startin' to bake
Hangin' our clothes on an old bridge plank
Your tan lines make it hard to think
Nothin' but footprints on the bank

Take my hand and come with me
Out there where the water's deep
Let's get swept away, wild and free

'Cause love's like a river flowin'
Takes you wherever it's goin'
Girl, I ain't lettin' go
Hold on, the water gets crazy
So let's you and me baby
Ride this thing into the setting sun
Let the river run

Watchin' the water run across your skin
Girl I know this feelin' will never end

'Cause love's like a river flowin'
Takes you wherever it's goin'
Girl, I ain't lettin' go
Hold on, the water gets crazy
So let's you and me baby
Ride this thing into the setting sun
Let the river run
