Lyrics
Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find
My way over

Wandering I am lost
As I travel along
White cliffs of Dover

But this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left me
She did not say why
So I guess, I have to try

Many rivers to cross
But 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

But this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left me
She did not say why
So I guess, I'll have to try

Many rivers to cross
But just where to I begin
I'm searchin for time

But this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left me
She did not say why
So I guess, I'll have to try

Many rivers to cross...
