Red River

Original and similar lyrics
(Bud McGuire/George Pearce) I remember campin' all night Down by the river's edge Skinny dippin' in the bright moonlight Divin' off a ledge Skippin' rocks across the water Fishin' on an old trout line Giggin' frogs 'til the early mornin' Smokin' dried crossvine Take me back down where the Red River rolls Send me back to Louisianne Take me back down where the white water flows To the Cajun promised land Give me my line and my old pirogue Get me back as fast as you can Take me back home where the Red River rolls Take me back home where the Red River rolls Floatin' down the river on a patched up inner tube Eatin' dinner on the ground Made of fresh caught catfish stew I layed awake at night When I hear a wildcat scream Tellin' tales by campfire light About the girls in our dreams Take me back home where the Red River rolls Send me back to Louisianne Take me back down where the white water flows To the Cajun promised land Give me my line and my old pirogue Get me back as fast as you can Take me back home where the Red River rolls Take me back home where the Red River rolls --- Instrumental --- Take me back home where the Red River rolls Send me back to Louisianne Take me back down where the white water flows To the Cajun promised land Give me my line and my old pirogue Get me back as fast as you can Take me back home where the Red River rolls Take me back home where the Red River rolls --- Instrumental to fade ---

Down By The River

Albert Hammond "Golden Classics"
City life was gettin' us down So we spent the weekend out of town Pitched the tent on the patch of ground Down by the river Lit a fire and drank some wine You put your jeans on the top of mine Said, come in the water's fine Down by the river Down by the river Down by the river Said, come in the water's fine Down by the river Didn't feel too good all night So we took a walk in the morning light Came across the strangest sight Down by the river Silver fish lay on its side It was washed up by the early tide I wonder how it died Down by the river Down by the river Down by the river Silver fish lay on its side Down by the river Doctor put us both to bed He dosed us up and he shook his head Only foolish people go, he said Down by the river Why do willows weep, said he Because they're dying gradually From the waste, from the factories Down by the river Down by the river Down by the river Why do willows weep, said he Down by the river In time, the river banks will die The reeds will wilt and the ducks won't fly There'll be a tear in the otter's eye Down by the river The banks will soon be black and dead And where the otter raised his head Will be a clean white stone instead Down by the river Down by the river Down by the river Will be a clean white stone instead Down by the river

The River

JORDAN FELIZ
I know a place where we can go To lay the troubles down eating your soul I know a place where mercy flows Take the stains make you whiter than snow Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside a current that moves and makes you come alive Living water that brings the dead to life We're going down to the river Down to the river, down to the river to pray Let's get washed by the water Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace Let's go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed) Let's go down, down, down to the river (Never the same) I've seen it move in my own life Took me from dusty roads into paradise All of my dirt, all of my shame Drowned in the streams that've made me born again Like a tide, it is rising up deep inside a current that moves and makes you come alive Living water that brings the dead to life We're going down to the river Down to the river, down to the river to pray Let's get washed by the water Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace Let's go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed) Let's go down, down, down to the river (Never the same) Let's go down [x3] We're going down to the river Down to the river, down to the river to pray Let's get washed by the water Washed by the water and rise up in amazing grace Let's go down, down, down to the river (You will leave changed) Let's go down, down, down to the river (Never the same) Gotta go, gotta go, gotta go in amazing grace [x2]

River Of Tears

Highway 101
It's four in the mornin', I'm tossin' and turnin' Lord I think that I'm comin' apart I cry your name in the darkness As I feel the tears burnin' It's hard to sleep on a broken heart You tell me we've been treadin' water Floatin' on courage and pride I thought we would last But now I'm sinkin' fast In this river of tears that I've cried I stare out the window And wonder where did you go And count the long hours 'til dawn If I cry me a river it's because I don't know Why you drifted while I'm hangin' on You tell me we've been treadin' water Floatin' on courage and pride I thought we would last But now I'm sinkin' fast In this river of tears that I've cried

Oceans

JAY-Z "Magna Carta... Holy Grail"
[Intro] Blessings, blessings yeah [Hook: Frank Ocean] I see elephant tusk on the boar of a sailing lady Docked on the Ivory Coast Mercedes in a row winding down the road I hope my black skin don't dirt this white tuxedo Before the Basquait show and if so Well fuck it, fuck it Because this water drown my family This water mixed my blood This water tells my story This water knows it all Go ahead and spill some champagne in the water Go ahead and watch the sun blaze On the waves Of the ocean [Verse 1: Jay-Z] Dope boy still smelling like cocaina White boat, white robe Can he be more cleaner The oil spill that BP ain't clean up I'm anti Santa Maria Only Christopher we acknowledge is Wallace I don't even like Washingtons in my pocket Black card go hard when I'm shopping Boat dock in front of Hermes picking cotton Silk and fleeces, lay on my Jesus Oh my God, I hope y'all don't get sea sick See me in shit you never saw If it wasn't for these pictures they wouldn't see me at all Aww, whole world in awe I crash through glass ceilings, I break through closed doors I'm on the ocean, I'm in heaven Yachting, Ocean 11 [Hook: Frank Ocean] [Verse 2: Jay-Z] Me and Ty Ty is like Pablo and Popeye Winding dirt roads on mopeds spilling opus Welcome to the magnum opus The Magna Carta The best-selling author Decoded On the holiday playing "Strange Fruit" If I'mma make it to a billi I can't take the same route Swoosh Now that's the sound of the border Swoosh Now that's the sound of a baller Muhammad Hovi my back against the rope, the black Maybach I'm back inside the boat Shepard Fairey they finally gave me some hope Can't believe they got a nigga to vote Democrat, nope I sold dope In trouble water I had to learn how to float On the ocean I'm in heaven Yachting Ocean 11 [Hook: Frank Ocean]

There Is A River

Gaither Vocal Band
There is a river, and it flows from deep within There is a fountain, that frees the soul from sin Come to this water; there is a vast supply There is a river, that never shall run dry. There was a thirsty woman, Who was drawing from a well You see her life was ruined and wasted And her soul was bound for hell Oh but then she met the Master And He told about her sin And he said “if you drink this water, You'll never thirst again.' There is a river, and it flows from deep within There is a fountain, that frees the soul from sin Come to this water; there is a vast supply There is a river, that never shall run dry.
