I've got a lover way over there
On the mountain side and I know that's where I should be
Don't you know I've got a lover way over there
Across the river wide and I can hear her calling to me

Oh, she's calling my name
So sweet and so plain
And I can hear her saying

Come to me baby
I'm on my way
Come to me baby
I'm gonna stay
Come to me baby

They tell me that the river's to deep
And it's much to wide for you can't get across to the other side
But they don't know I got to get there
And hold her in my arms just one more time

Like a did before
When she mine all mine
'Cause I can hear her saying

Come to me baby
I'm on my way
Come to me baby
I'm gonna stay

Come to me baby
I'm gonna get to you
Come to me baby
No matter what I have to do
Come to me baby

They tell me that the river's to deep
And it's much to wide for you can't make it over to the other side
But they don't know I got to get there
And hold her in my arms just one more time

Like a did before when she mine all mine
'Cause I can hear her saying

Come to me baby
I'm on my way
Come to me baby
I'm gonna stay
Come to me baby

Ooh, baby when I get there
I ain't going nowhere
'Cause a river ain't deep enough
A mountain ain't steep enough
To keep me from your side
