Moody River
More deadly than the vainest knife
Moody River
Your muddy water took my baby's life.

Last Saturday evening
I came to the old oak tree
That stands beside the river
Where you were to meet me.

On the ground your glove I found
With a note addressed to me
It read dear love I've done you wrong
Now I must set you free...

No longer can I live
With this hurt and this sin
I just couldn't tell you
That girl was just a friend.

Moody River
More deadly than the vainest knife
Moody River
Your muddy water took my baby's life.

I looked into the muddy water
And what could I see
I saw a lonely, lonely face
Just looking back at me.

Tears in her eyes
And the prayer on her lips
And the glove of her lost love
At her fingertips.

Moody River
More deadly than the vainest knife
Moody River
Your muddy water took my baby's life...
