Ray LaMontagne – Down To The River


I’ve been walking too long, two long years
Shake my head and wonder why I cried those tears
Soles of my feet are burning, Lord
And my eyes, they cannot see
Would you tell me why it is that these truths terrify me
Yes, they terrify me

Take me down to the river, down to the river then
Sweet love got to walk beside me, hold my hand
Down to the river, down to the river, Lord
Sweet love got to hold me under, save my soul
Yes, you’ve got to save my soul
You’ve got to save my soul now
Save my soul
Yes, you’ve got to save my soul now

Spent most of my life confused and in pain
Things I cannot even begin to explain
It takes more than a glass of cool water
To douse this flame
Yes, with my peace and my cup
And my eyes turned up to heaven
I’m just a beggar in the rain
Yes, a beggar in the rain, now

Down to the river, down to the river then
Sweet love got to walk beside me, hold my hand
Down to the river, down to the river, Lord
Sweet love got to hold me under, save my soul
Save my soul
Save my soul
You’ve got to save my soul
Save, save it, Oh oh
Save my soul
Save my soul, Oh
Yeah yeah
Ah, yeah yeah
