Syl Johnson – Take Me To The River lyrics
I don't know why,
I love ya like I do.
After all the changes,
You put me through.

You stole my money,
And my cigarettes.
And I haven't seen,
How to? yet.

[Chorus:]
I wanna know,
Won't you tell me,
I'd love to stay,
Hey, hey, hey.
[End Chorus]

Take me to the river,
Wash me down.
Won't you cleanse my soul?
Put my feet on the ground.

I don't know why,
She treated me so bad.
After of all the things,
That we could have had.

Love is an ocean,
That I can't forget.
My sweet sixteen,
I will never regret.

[Repeat chorus]
I wanna know,
Won't you tell me,
I'd love to stay,
Hey, hey, hey.

Take me to the river...

[Bridge]

Hold me,
Hug me,
Squeeze me,
Tease me!
Till I can't,
Till I can't take no more!
Can't take no more.

I don't know why,
I love you like I do.
After all the things,
That you put me through.

Those Sixteen candles,
Are burned on my wall.
Tell me who's the biggest,
Fool of them all?

[Repeat chorus]

Take me to the river,
Wash me down.
Dip me in the water,
Put my feet on the ground...
