"Don't Cross The River"

(As recorded by America)
DANIEL PEEK

There's a little girl out lyin' on her own
She's got a broken heart
She's not the kind to take you down for long
She knows and plays it smart

And if she's comin', she's showed no mark
She's heard no whistle blowin' from the dark
She feels like leavin' and she don't know why
Without no bridges she's trapped, so I sigh

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denyin' livin' on the other side all your life
You were on your own
And if you want you can ride my train
And soon forget the reason that you're leavin'
You'll lose yourself and then sometime
Maybe even save yourself some grievin'

Oh, oh oh, oh oh, oh oh oh oh oh oh

Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denyin' livin' on the other side
Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't try denyin' livin' on the other side
Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
Don't cross the river if you can't swim the tide
