It's three miles to the river
That would carry me away
Two miles to the dusty street
That I saw you on today

It's four miles to my lonely room
Where I will hide my face
And about half a mile to the downtown bar
That I ran from in disgrace

Lord how long have I got to keep on running
Seven hours seven days or seven years?

All I know is since you've been gone
I feel like I'm drowning in a river
