I left home in the mornin', 'fore the rooster crow for day.
I left home in the mornin', 'fore the rooster crow for day.
I went to the banks of the river, and I got down on my knees and prayed.
How I prayed

I said help me dear old river, know the way that I should go.
I said help me dear old river know the way I should go.
This world has got so crazy won't you teach me how to flow?
Just flow?

The river's flowin' fast now, you can't hold on to the past now.
The force of love will carry you away.
To a land of peaceful living, of healing and forgiving.
We're heading for a new and brighter day.

Well I jumped into the river, it chilled my body not my soul.
I jumped into the river, it chilled my body not my soul.
And I just got to tell you that blessed river done made me whole.
mmm mmm

Now I live down by the river, I wash my body every day.
I live down by the river, I wash my body and soul every day.
And I just got to tell you that right here is where I am gonna stay.
Yeah

The river's flowin' fast now, you can't hold on to the past now.
The force of love will carry you away.
To a land of peaceful living, of healing and forgiving.
We're heading for a new and brighter day.

I left home in the mornin', 'fore the rooster crow for day.
I left home in the mornin', 'fore the rooster crow for day.
I went to the banks of the river, and I got down on my knees and prayed.
