Cool breeze on the river ripples to the shore
Wash away my troubles to the sea forevermore
Wind and willows whisper, sadness is the sound
Tell a tale of my once happy world that's fallen down
Old man I might be going where you're bound

Old man river, I've come to talk again
Yes, I know you're tired 'cause your journey never ends
He's just like you he's movin' all the time
And I think he's movin' me out of his mind

I wanna travel with you in your deep and emerald soul
That's the only way to make it peaceful like before
We used to touch at midnight but now I feel he's gone
Even though he's lying next to me I feel alone
Old man it looks like time to travel on

Old man river, I've come to talk again
Yes, I know you're tired 'cause your journey never ends
He's just like you he's movin' all the time
And I think he's movin' me out of his mind

Old man river I've come to talk again
Yes, I know you're tired 'cause your journey never ends
He's just like you he's movin' all the time
And I think he's movin' me out of his mind
