Riverdown



I was 8 years old when my Daddy went away
They told me it was just for awhile
I must have been 12 when I finally realized
That my father wasn't ever coming home

Well you grow up in a hurry and a little out of line
Get a job before you ever hit your teens
And you wonder if it's all your ever gonna find
So you drive until your out of gasoline

We drove down to the river, down to the river
On the river bank is where we went to pray
Down to the river we'd go down to the river
'Cause the river washes everything away

Now I got a wife and kids and I'm hardly ever home
It's just for awhile is all I say
And all that you can do is finally realize
That sometimes there's a debt you gotta pay

Everything that seemed so important back then
Is lost like it never meant a thing
But sometimes late at night when I get to hold you tight
I remember running out of gasoline

We drove down to the river, we went down to the river
On the river bank is where we went to hide
Down to the river, we went down to the river
Down to the river we would ride
