Oh, the river run down but the stream ran dry. big strong man
Don't ever cry.
Just stands to watch his love go by. oh, the river ran down but
The stream ran dry.
Yes, he loved a woman but he let her get away. didn't ever think
He'd regret that day.
The laugh and the smile, he'd still play the game, but he knew
That day would never by the same.
There walks a man, he could've had a home, fine baby children, a
Woman of his own.
He walks all alone. he doesn't have a care but he keeps on
Thinking that he sees her ev'rywhere.
