[Verse:]
It's Friday and my bills are due
My 3 month old baby need some shoes
Can you feel what I'm going through
Clock on the wall keeps tickin tockin
No stoppin and somebodys knockin
On the do tellin me to go
Brotha I can't take no mo
So with my knees I hit the flo
And say help me Jesus, help me Jesus

[Chorus:]
Let's go down by the riverside
Leave your problems all behind
You can rest troubled minds
Down by the riverside

[Verse:]
If I concentrate on all the bad
And all the things I wish I had
How can the dark clouds ever pass
Weeping may endure for a night
But joy comes in the morning light
God he keeps me right
So no matter what the people say
Ain't nobody takin this joy away
In spite of all things I've been through I can say
Thank you Jesus, Thank you Jesus, Thank you Jesus

[Chorus:]
Let's go down by the riverside
Leave your problems all behind
You can rest troubled minds
Down by the riverside
(3 times)

Well, Well, Well

There's a blessin in the water ya'll
By the riverside, Say what now
There's a healin in the water
By the riverside, Say what now
