Where the river bends

lyrics

I'm going where they won't see me
down where the river bends
going where they won't see me
in my own heaven, in my own heaven

city's fallen on hard times
trouble is all around
city's fallen on hard times
trouble is all around, trouble is all around

take my line and away I run
down with my fishing pole
take my line and away I run
scared him out of that swimming hole
scared him out of that swimming hole

going where they won't see me
down where the river bends
going where they won't see me
trouble's going to meet their end
trouble's going to meet their end

baby got me a shiny ring
bought it from the store
baby got me a shiny ring
now I don't know what for
now I don't know what for

then he got mad and he spooked me
filling my head with doubt
then he got mad and he spooked me
but a rain's going to end this drought
a rain's going to end this drought

I'm going where they won't see me
down where the river's wide
going where they won't see me
and I ain't gonna be your bride
No I ain't gonna to be your bride

ain't gonna fry you bacon
ain't gonna bring you ham
ain't gonna fry you bacon
I'm happy as I am
I'm happy as I am

ain't gonna be gritting my teeth
ain't gonna string you pearl
ain't gonna be gritting my teeth
while you're running off with another girl
running off with another girl

going where they won't see me
down where the river's long
going where they won't see me
singing my sorrow song
singing my sorrow song
