Clapton Chronicles: The Best Of Eric Clapton 1981-1999 - River Of Tears lyrics

(by eric clapton, simon clime)

It's three miles to the river
That would carry me away,
And two miles to the dusty street
That i saw you on today.

It's four miles to my lonely room
Where i will hide my face,
And about half a mile to the downtown bar
That i ran from in disgrace.

Lord, how long have i got to keep on running,
Seven hours, seven days or seven years?
All i know is, since you've been gone
I feel like i'm drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feel like i'm drowning,
Drowning in a river.

In three more days, i'll leave this town
And disappear without a trace.
A year from now, maybe settle down
Where no one knows my face.

I wish that i could hold you
One more time to ease the pain,
But my time's run out and i got to go,
Got to run away again.

Still i catch myself thinking,
One day i'll find my way back here.
You'll save me from drowning,
Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
Drowning in a river.
Feels like i'm drowning,
Drowning in the river.
Lord, how long must this go on?

Drowning in a river,
Drowning in a river of tears.
