HARRY CHAPIN lyrics - On the Road to Kingdom Come

Roll Down The River

Original and similar lyrics
You keep looking out my window At the driftwood floating by Like a flock of birds in falltime You're just itching to fly I know I cannot hold you Cause you live life to the hilt So go on get out of here girl I don't want your guilt. Go on and roll down your river Babe I'll bet you'll make that muddy water churn You've earned every scar That you brought with you Baby But there's one lesson that you'll never learn. What goes down that river don't return. I remember when you washed up on my doorstep You had a dirty face, a damp dress and a dream But now you're just a fish out of the water, Baby It's time to throw you back into the stream. So go on and roll down your river Babe I'll bet you'll make that muddy water churn You've earned every scar That you brought with you Baby But there's one lesson that you'll never learn. What goes down that river don't return. Now don't you bleed on me about all our good times Don't tell me that you'll never be the same Don't tell me anything but goodbye Baby More than that would be just another game. So go on and roll down your river Babe I'll bet you'll make that muddy water churn You've earned every scar That you brought with you Baby But there's one lesson that you'll never learn. What goes down that river don't return. You leave me with a month of your sweet madness You leave me with your music in my head You leave me with the mystery of the river rolling You leave me with a desert for my bed. So go on and roll down your river Babe I'll bet you'll make that muddy water churn You've earned every scar That you brought with you Baby But there's one lesson that you'll never learn. What goes down that river don't return.

River Of No Return

THE JEFF HEALEY BAND "See The Light"
Well, you know you're gonna have to steal it, If you want your cake and eat it, too There is no one less believin', Than the guy who's been deceiving you You got to pay the piper, In the end you will be so much wiser Got to use your best endeavor, When you're kissing to be clever 'Cause it's a hard, hard lesson, That you're gonna learn, On the river of no return You been burnin' all your bridges, Like a child with forty wishes, On the river of no return Well, you got your finger, On the trigger, It would help if you was-a bigger Now, it's not easy, I know, it's not easy 'Cause it's a hard, hard lesson, That you're gonna learn, On the river of no return Yes, you have done your share of cheatin', Now you're gonna have to take a beatin' You been acting like a sucker Now, you're gonna have to suffer, yeah 'Cause it's a hard, hard lesson, That you're gonna learn, On the river of no return Say, say, say It's a hard, hard, lesson, That you're gonna learn, On the river of no return It's a one way to go, It's on and on you go On the river of no return. Say it again! It's a hard, hard lesson, That you're gonna learn, On the river of no return Got swept out in the tide, With no one on your side, On the river of no return

Moody River

JOHN FOGERTY "The Blue Ridge Rangers Rides Again"
Moody river more deadly than the natalest night Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life. Last Saturday evening I came to the old oak tree That stands beside the river where you were to meet me. On the ground your glove I found with a note addressed to me It readĀ : 'Dear love, I've done you wrong, now I must set you free'. No longer can I live with this hurt and this sin I just couldn't tell you that guy was just a friend. Moody river more deadly than the natalest night Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life. I looked into the muddy water and what could I seeĀ ? I saw a lonely, lonely face just looking back at me. Tears in his eyes and the prayer on his lips And the glove of his lost love was at his fingertips. Moody river more deadly than the natalest night Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life. Moody river more deadly than the natalest night Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life.

Muddy Waters

JOHNNY CASH "Silver"
Mary grab the baby river's risin' mudy water taking back the land Old frame house she can't take no more beatin' ain't no use to stay and make a stand Well the morning light showed water in the valley Daddy's grave just went below the line Things they say you just can't take 'em with you The flood will swallow all you leave behind Won't be back to start all over cause what I've held before is gone Mary take the child the river's risin' muddy water taking back my home The road is gone there's just one way to leave here Turn my back on what I've left below Shiftin' lands broken farms around me muddy water's changin' all I know Hard to say just what I'm losin' ain't never felt so all alone Mary take the child the river's risin' muddy water taking back my home Won't be back to start... That muddy water taking back my home Muddy water's taking back my home muddy water taking back my home

Crossing Muddy Waters

JOHN HIATT "Crossing Muddy Waters"
My baby's gone and I don't know why She let out this morning Like a rusty shot in a hollow sky Left me without warning Sooner than the dogs could bark and faster than the sun rose Down to the banks in an old mule car she took a flatboat across the shallow CHORUS: Left me in my tears to drown she left a baby daughter Now the water's wide and deep and brown She's crossing muddy water Tobacco standing in the fields be rotten come November And a bitter heart will not reveal a spring that love remembers When that sweet brown girl of mine her hair black as a raven We broke the bread and drank the wine from a jug that she'd been saving CHORUS Baby's crying and the daylight's gone That big oak tree is groaning In rush of wind and river of song I can hear my sweetheart moaning Crying for her baby child or crying for her husband Crying for that river's wild to take her from her loved ones CHORUS TWICE

Man In My Life
