Lyrics

Well, I woke up this morning with nothing but blues on my mind
Well, I woke up this morning with nothing but blues on my mind
Oh, please, help me, Lord, sometimes I can't help but cry

All these creditors and interest, rent man says: 'Pay up or go'
In this ruthless society no one gives a damn no more
Guess I'm back on the road but don't know which way to turn

Well, I went down to the river to rest my weary head
I prayed to the Lord and this is what he said
He says: 'You fight and you fight until you're dead and bones'
'But you try and you try and you must never give up hope'

'So come on down to the river and rest your weary head'
'Oh, come home, sweet child, remember what the good book says'

So come down to the river, the river of life
So come down to the river, the river of light
Oh, come home, sweet child, remember what the good book said

We were born to be free
Whatever happened to you and me
But we'll fight it together and make no mistake
Until the truth is ours we'll do whatever it takes

Come to the river, the river of life
Won't you come to the river, the river of light?
Oh, come home, sweet child, remember what the good book said

Come to the river
Come to the river
Come home, sweet child, remember what the good book said
