      About "Down to the River"

      Lyrics for Pat Green - "Down to the River"

      Take me down to the river
      Where I can hold your body close to mine
      We can listen to the rhythm
      Of that old water rollin'
      You can stay with me until the mornin' light
      Well, I found you on a Louisiana roadside park
      Beat up, broke down, no place left to turn
      Well, I took you back to Texas
      Under a harvest moon

      We found a little place to call our own
      We shared all the hopes and dreams of our younger years
      Married at the tender age of twenty-one
      Rollin' down the highways
      Dirtroads, and the by-ways

      You liked to drive, so I could go shotgun
      And we'd go down to the river
      Where I would hold your body close to mine
      We'd listen to the rhythm
      Of that old water rollin'

      You'd stay with me until the mornin' light
      Well, somewhere throught the years
      Somebody turned your head
      And took my love so far away from me
      Yeah, he hauled you off to Boulder
      Where the air gets much colder

      Than this southern boy would ever like to see
      And I think of callin' you on the lonely nights
      When being alone gets the best of me
      But this, here, whiskey bottle
      Will take me to a place
      Where you and I will always be
      Want to go down to the river

      Where I could hold your body close to mine
      And we'd listen to the rhythm
      Of that old water rollin'
      And you'd stay with me until the mornin' light
      And when you came back everybody said I was a fool
      'Cause I took you back without two words to say
      Yeah, but I couldn't go on livin'
      Thinkin' about all I was missin'

      And I don't give a damn 'bout what those people say
      Want to go down to the river?
      Lets go down to the river
      Gonna go down to the river
