Lyrics

Oh river, carry my love away Off where the light and the shadows play And let the memory quickly fade Oh river, carry my love away Oh river, catch these tears I cry I can’t stop no matter how I try Take ‘em over to the other side Oh river, catch these tears I cry I know that I was wrong, it didn't have to end this way I took it all too far, but now there's nothing I can change Should've let a cooler head prevail Add it to the list of things at which I've failed Oh river, you keep your secrets well You know the truth but you won't ever tell There ain't no price at which you'd sell Oh river, you keep your secrets well Can't unshoot a gun Add it to the list of stupid things I've done Oh river, you can't wash my sins away I'll always bear this permanent stain Something to remind me til my dying day So river, carry me away Oh river, mmm hmm hmm Oh river...
