​River Ran Dry

This song is by Reverend Horton Heat and appears on the album Laughin' & Cryin' With The Reverend Horton Heat (2009).

Lord, won't you tell me why the river ran dry?
Please, Lord, tell me, won't you just say why?
Used to catch catfish right over there
Right over there 'fore the river ran bare

Won't you tell me why?
Luck is not my friend
Went to church sometimes
Tried hard not to sin

Lord, won't you tell me why the river ran dry?
Please Lord tell me, won't you just say why?

Lord, won't you tell me why my baby had to go?
Please, Lord, tell me, won't you let me know?
Used to say she loved me every night and everyday
Why'd she have to pack it up and move away?

Won't you tell me why?
She just got annoyed
I had to quit my job
Temporarily unemployed

Lord, won't you tell me why my baby had to go?
Please, Lord, tell me, won't you let me know?

Lord, won't you tell me why the river ran dry?
Please, Lord, tell me, won't you just say why?
Used to catch catfish right over there
Right over there 'fore the river ran bare

Won't you tell me why?
Luck is not my friend
Went to church sometimes
Tried hard not to sin

Lord, will you tell me why the river ran dry?
Please, Lord, tell me, won't you just say why?
