Deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love

I spent a night in L.A.
Just another chance to see you
Just you and I
Wanted you to know
That my playing days are over
'Cause all I do is think of you
The writing's on the wall

Deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love

I've been out in the world
Yes, the fast life had me going
Now all that's changed
I finally make up my mind
About the one thing
I've been knowing
You're the only girl
I've ever cared for in this world

Deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love

You kind of love girl is forever
It took me a long time to realize
That I've come so far
And end up going nowhere
Oh, girl, I need you by my side

Oh deep river woman
Lord I'm coming home to you
Deep river woman
Lord I know she's waiting
Just anticipating all my love
