Lyrics

Well I'm standing all alone by the river of my home Thinking about the days I've left behind All the years I roamed not a nickel can I show And the river helps to ease my worried mind Well the river run all night, lord, the river runs all day I can't run no more cause I'm here to stay I had an eye for trouble and I've lived a life of pain I sit back and let that water heal my brain I'm letting go of all my troubles I think I'll be right here to stay Well the water keeps a churning while my poor heart is burning Muddy water take my pain away Well one thing I want to know, lord, is where we people go When everything comes crashing to the ground Meet me at the creek grab a beer and tap your feet See that muddy water flowing down I'm letting go of all my troubles I think I'll be right here to stay Well the water keeps a churning while my poor heart is burning Muddy water take my pain away Well I'm standing all alone by the river of my home Thinking about the days I've left behind All the years I roamed not a nickel can I show And the river helps to ease my worried mind I'm letting go of all my troubles I think I'll be right here to stay Well the water keeps a churning while my poor heart is burning Muddy water take my pain away Muddy water take my pain away
