River of Tears Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It's 3 miles to the river,
That would carry me away,
And 2 miles to the dusty street,
That I saw you on Today,
Verse 2
It's 4 miles to my lonely room,
Where I will hide my face,
And about a half a mile to the downtown bar,
That I ran from in disgrace,
Verse 3
Lord how long do I have to keep on running,
Seven hours, Seven days or Seven years,
All I know is since you've been gone,
Feels like I'm drowning in a river,
Verse 4
Drowning in a river of tears,
Drowning in a river,
Feels like I'm drowning,
Drowning in a river,
Verse 5
In 3 more days Ill leave this town,
And disappear without a trace,
A year from now maybe settle down,
Where no one knows my face,
Verse 6
I wish that I could hold you,
One more time to ease the pain,
But my times run out and I got to go,
Got to run away again,
Verse 7
Still I catch myself thinking,
One day I'll find my way back here,
You'll save me from drowning,
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears,
Drowning in a river,
Verse 8
Feels like I'm drowning,
Drowning in a river
Oh how long must this go on,
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears
