Many Rivers To Cross

Many rivers to cross
And I only survive because of my pride
Sometimes I find myself contemplating
Committing some terrible crime

And this loneliness won't leave me alone
Such a drag to be on your own
My woman left and she didn't say why
Oh, I guess I'll have to cry

Oh, many rivers to cross
And I still cannot find my way over
Wandering, I am lost
As I travel the white cliffs of Dover

And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left me and she didn't say why
Oh, I guess I'll just have to cry

Oh yeah, many rivers to cross
And I only survive because of my pride
I've been licked, washed up for years
And I only survive because of my pride

Many rivers to cross
Many rivers to cross
