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

It's four Months 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,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feel like I'm drowning,
Drowning in a river.

In three more days, I'll leave this town
And disappear without a trace.
A year from now, maybe settle down
Where no one knows my face.

I wish that I could hold you
One more time to ease the pain,
But my time's run out and I got to go,
Got to run away again.

Still I catch myself thinking,
One day I'll find my way back here.
You'll save me from drowning,
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feels like I'm drowning,
Drowning in the river.

Lord, how long must this go on?
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
