I've been all across the country
And I've stayed in every town
Because I'm trying to find my baby
But no one has seen her around
And you know which way I'm headed
If my baby can't be found

I spoke to the river
And the river spoke back to me
It said oh you look so lonely
So you look full of misery
And if you can't find your baby
Come and make your home with me

Well, I don't want to leave him
