Song Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
It's three miles to the river
That would carry me away
Two miles to the dusty street
That I saw you on today
Verse 2
It's four miles to my lonely room
Where I will hide my face
And about half a mile to the downtown bar
That I ran from in disgrace
Verse 3
Lord how long have I got to keep on running
Seven hours seven days or seven years?
Verse 4
All I know is since you've been gone
I feel like I'm drowning in a river
Drowning in a river of tears
Drowning in a river
Feel like I'm drowning
Drowning in a river
Verse 5
In three more days, I'll 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 time's 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
Feels like I'm drowning
Drowning in the river
Verse 8
Oh, how long must this go on?
Drowning in a river
Drowning in a river of tears
