Many rivers to cross
But I can`t seem to find
My way over
Wandering I am lost
As I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover
Many rivers to cross
And it`s only my will
That keeps me alive
I`ve been licked
Washed up for years
And I merely survive
Because of my pride
And this loneliness won`t leave me alone
It`s such a drag to be on your own
My man he left me but he wouldn't say why
Well I guess, I have to try
Many rivers to cross
But just where to begin
I`m playing for time
There`ll be times I find myself
Thinking of committing
Some dreadful crime.
And this loneliness won`t leave me alone
It`s such a drag to be on your own
My man he left me but he wouldn't say why
Well I guess, I have to try, yeah yeah
Rivers, rivers to cross
Yeah yeah
Rivers to cross
