Crossin' the river in a big old boat,
With a dollar bill in my hand.
Gonna go fishin' in the afternoon,
Got a simple plan.
Oh yeah, baby.

I got to hold on,
I got to be strong,
I got to live long,
And be with you.

Lonely nights and lonely days,
When I'm not with you.
Learned to trust and I learned to give,
Found a love that's true.
Oh yeah, baby.

I got to hold on,
I got to be strong,
I got to live long,
And be with you.

Girl it shouldn't be too hard,
To live with you.
It's really not complicated,
Until I get the blues.

Come on over and sit right down,
Let me take your hand,
I got a love gonna fill you up,
Take you to the promised land.
Oh yeah, baby, oh yeah.

I got to hold on,
I got to be strong,
I got to live long,
And be with you.

Be with you baby,
Be with you baby,
I got to be with you babe.
Be with you baby, oh alright.

Lonely nights, lonely days,
When I'm not with you babe.
Learned to trust and I learned to give,
Found a love that's true, babe.
Oh yeah, baby.

I got to hold on now,
Got to be strong now,
To be with you.
Be with you baby,
Be with you baby.
