I'm goin' to the river,
Gonna jump overboard and drown
I'm goin' to the river,
Gonna jump overboard and drown
Because the girl I love
She just done let me down

Now when she left me,
I bowed my head and cried
When she left me,
I bowed my head and cried
I never thought I would be,
I would be the one to cry

If you see my mama,
Tell her good-bye for me
If you see my mama,
Tell her good-bye for me
I'm tired of livin'
Livin' in misery

If you see my mama,
Tell her good-bye for me
If you see my mama,
Tell her good -bye for me
Ya know I'm tired of livin'
Livin' in misery
