Deep River
Deep River - Brink Brinkman and Rick Faris

Take me far away, deep river
Take the pain away, deep River
Lord knows how big a fool I’ve been
I’ve been thinking on jumping in
Deep river

I grew up skippin’ rock on deep river
It’s rapid and it’s mighty carrying everything on down
I hear the steamboat whistle and I shiver
Never thought I’d want to leave this little river town

My true love was like the ole deep river
Wild and untamed in her beauty I did drown
Floating on hope we’d always be together
Now they’ve left me here behind and both’re headed South (down)

Tell me what to do now deep river
You’ve seen a lot of broken folks along your muddy shores
This town has got too many memories of’ her
Take me far away Let your Mighty river roar
