Gonna Take A Lot Of River

Song Author Mark Henley og John Kurhajetz Performer: The Oak Ridge Boys Submitted by: Anonymous

[C]I ain't gonna ride no rail or hitchhike down no [G7]highway
I aint' going nowhere feeling the way I [C]do  
Because my baby's long gone and nothings going [G7]my way
I'm gonna let this muddy water just wash away my [C]blues

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken [G7]heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long [C]day  
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the [G7]Ohio   
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues [C]away

Well I wish I was tug boat pushing and pulling them barges [G7]along
Moving on the water with a heart made of iron and [C]steel

There wouldn't be no woman that could ever
Take my loving and do me [G7]wrong
I could work all day with nothing in the world to [C]feel

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken [G7]heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long [C]day  
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the [G7]Ohio   
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues [C]away

Is she in [F]New Orleans is she a [G#m]Cajun queen
I [A#]wonder what she's doing [C]now  
But if [F]I know her she's got [G#]rings and furs
[A#]Struggling along some[C]how  

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken [G7]heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long [C]day  
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the [G7]Ohio   
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues [C]away


I ain't gonna ride no rail or hitchhike down no highway
I aint' going nowhere feeling the way I do
Because my baby's long gone and nothings going my way
I'm gonna let this muddy water just wash away my blues

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away

Well I wish I was tug boat pushing and pulling them barges along
Moving on the water with a heart made of iron and steel

There wouldn't be no woman that could ever
Take my loving and do me wrong
I could work all day with nothing in the world to feel

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away

Is she in New Orleans is she a Cajun queen
I wonder what she's doing now
But if I know her she's got rings and furs
Struggling along somehow

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away
