Come To The River

Lyrics:

Well I woke up this morning
With nothing but blues on my mind
Well I woke up this morning
With nothing but blues on my mind
Oh please help me Lord
Sometimes I can't help but cry

All these creditors and interest
Rent man says pay up or go
In this ruthless society
No one gives a damn no more
Guess I'm back on the road
But don't know which way to turn

Well I went down to the river
To rest my weary head
I prayed to the Lord
And this is what he said
He says, you fight and you fight
Until you're dead and bones
But you try and you try
And you must never give up hope

So come on down to the river
And rest your weary head
Oh come home sweet child
Remember what the good book says

So come down to the river
The river of life
So come down to the river
The river of light
Oh come home sweet child
Remember what the good book said

We were born to be free
Whatever happened to you and me
But we'll fight it together
And make no mistake
Until the truth is ours
We'll do whatever it takes

Come to the river
The river of life
Won't you come to the river
The river of light
Oh come home sweet child
Remember what the good book said

Come to the river
Come to the river
Come home sweet child
Remember what the good book said
