love, like a river lyrics – girls

“love, like a river”

my love is like a river
she just keeps on rolling along

no man ever can keep that girl
from moving on
easy as she comes by
easy as she’s gone

get down, real down
crying how i love that girl
she’s as free as heaven on a breeze

lay my burden down
down by the river’s edge
there i learned to let my lover be

and don’t you know i’d hold you
if i could find a way
if i could only catch you
if only you would stay

and don’t you know i want you
baby, baby, baby, baby, stay
if i could only love you
but girl, you keep on
running away, running away, running away
oh no

my love is like a river
