​Down to the River

This song is by The Cadillac Three and appears on the album The Cadillac Three (2012).

I'm sick of trying
And I'm six feet short of dying
And this world don't care if I'm crying
So tell me where does a broken man go?

I don't understand.
I guess I'm kinda like my old man
I'm gonna live and die just to work in my bare hands
So tell me where does a broken man go?

I'm going down to the river, down to the river,
That old muddy water's gonna clear my mind,
Down to the river, down to the river,
And watch my troubles just float on by,
Oh, please just float on by

When I was young, this world was just skipping stones
You can keep what you call and take it home
Now tell where did that world go?
At 21, that preacher took me back on my hair
I gotta get that feeling back again
Cause this sin's trying to take my soul

I'm going down to the river, down to the river,
That old muddy water's gonna clear my mind,
Down to the river, down to the river,
And watch my troubles just float on by,
Oh, please just float on by

That muddy water
That old delta queen
I'ma calling
It's gonna set me free (2x)

I'm going down to the river, down to the river,
That old muddy water's gonna clear my mind,
Down to the river, down to the river,
And watch my troubles just float on by
