Alison Krauss – Gentle River Lyrics

I’ve lived a life full of sorrow

With no where to run or to hide

Happiness you’ll see is borrowed

All I want is you by my side

[Chorus:]

Gentle river take me away

to the time of happier days

All I need is love and company

Gentle river bring him back to me

You can spend all your time a’cryin

Listen here I don’t need your sympathy

Cause I’ve made my life to live it

All I need is you here with me…

[Chorus]

Gentle river bring em’ back to me
