Gentle River

This song is by Alison Krauss and appears on the album Too Late to Cry (1987).

I've lived a life full of sorrow
With nowhere to run or to hide
Happiness you'll see is borrowed
All I want is you by my side

Gentle river, take me away
To the time of happier days
All I need is love and company
Gentle river, bring him back to me

You can spend all your time a-crying
Listen here, I don't need your sympathy
'Cause I've made my life to live it
All I need is you here with me

Gentle river, take me away
To the time of happier days
All I need is love and company
Gentle river, bring him back to me

Gentle river, bring him back to me
