      Lyrics for Tim McGraw - "Between The River And Me"

      I was fifteen when my daddy died
      Mama worked two jobs just to get by
      Seemed like a blessing when Harley came around
      So she took his name, but I had my doubts
      Didn't take long for his drinking ways to start showing up on mama's face
      One violent night, hiding under my bed
      I swore that he wouldn't see another sunset
      Next day I followed him down to the riverbank
      I knew one of us wouldn't walk away

      I might have had a plan, but he didn't know it
      I might have been scared, but I didn't show it
      That's all between the river and me
      With the current and the rocks it could have been misty
      He might have been sober, but I brought the whiskey
      That's all between the river and me

      I walked up to him, and I said his name
      Just so he could see the look on my face
      We stood eye to eye and toe to toe
      When I told him that he wasn't gonna come back home
      He raised his fist to me, but I didn't flinch
      I said, "I ain't your son, you son of a bitch."

      I might have had a knife in my back pocket
      I might have pulled it out before he saw it
      That's all between the river and me
      I might have had a gun, but I didn't fire it
      He might have tried to yell, but I kept him quiet
      That's all between the river and me
      That's all between the river and me

      Sheriff came knocking on our front door
      They said they found his body by the reservoir
      Bottle in his shirt and liquor in his blood
      He must have fallen in the river and he never came up

      There might have been blood, but they never saw it
      Just a little mud on the living room carpet
      That's all between the river and me
      Well, after what he done, there ain't no wonder
      I can't remember how long I held him under
      That's all between the river and me
      That's all between the river and me
      That's all between the river and me
      That's all
      That's all
