Bob Seger – Big River lyrics

Life is like a big river

Sinkin' or swim, depends on you

You can take or you can be a giver

You're gonna get through
Once, a good woman loved me
If you got love

Kinda cruel, and she left me one day

Now I'm cyin', she loves another

Gotta go alone
The rest of the way

Take, the advice of a loser

Who's been livin' too long alone
Follow your heart

Follow your rainbow
And one day you'll find
You are not alone
