Lyrics for River of Tears
By Eric Clapton

Mail these lyrics to a friend

Itís three miles to the river
That would carry me away,
And two miles to the dusty street
That I saw you on today.

Itís four miles to my lonely room
Where I will hide my face,
And about half a mile to the downtown bar
That I ran from in disgrace.

Lord, how long have I got to keep on running,
Seven hours, seven days or seven years?
All I know is, since youíve been gone
I feel like Iím drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feel like Iím drowning,
Drowning in a river.

In three more days, Iíll leave this town
And disappear without a trace.
A year from now, maybe settle down
Where no one knows my face.

I wish that I could hold you
One more time to ease the pain,
But my timeís run out and I got to go,
Got to run away again.

Still I catch myself thinking,
One day Iíll find my way back here.
Youíll save me from drowning,
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feels like Iím drowning,
Drowning in the river.
Lord, how long must this go on?

Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
