Ray Charles – I'm Going Down The River lyrics
1) I'm goin down to the river and drown myself, well
I'm goin down to the river and drown myself

Oh babe, oh I'm goin down yes and turn myself in,
Cause my baby? Lovin someone else

Now you know why I'm goin down to the river and drown
Myself

2) I'm sick and tired of this misery down in my heart,
Way down in my heart
I'm sick and tired of this misery down in my heart, oh
Lord
Well I'm sick and tired of this misery, lord have
Mercy, have mercy on me
I'm sick and tired of this misery down in my heart

3) so goodbye baby (bye baby) well I got to go, so
Please don't cry, cause it's too late to cry
Bye bye baby well I got to go, so please don't cry,
Oh no
Oh bye bye baby, I've got to go, that's why I called
You, just to let you know
I'm goin down to the river and drown myself
