Oh, my love, my darlin'
Ive hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

Lonely rivers flow
To the seas, to the sea
To the open arms of the sea
Lonely rivers sigh
Wait for me, wait for me
Ill be coming home, wait for me

Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love to me

God speed your love to me


(As performed by Marty Robbins)

Oh, my love, my darlin'
Ive hungered for your touch
A long lonely time
Time goes by so slowly
And time can do so much
Are you still mine
I need your love
I need your love
God speed your love back to me

Lonely rivers flow
To the arms of the sea
To the waiting arms of the sea
Lonely rivers cry
Wait for me, wait for me
Ill be coming home, wait for me
My love, wait for me, wait for me, wait for me
