The River

(Preacher, take me down)
(Take me down the river, river)

It's not what I had planned when I was walking in
I didn't know what I'd see
Stepping through the door, their clothes were on the floor
Was something like a bad dream
And then in just a blink, before I could think
I didn't know what happened
All I knew was this
How could he commit a crime against our passion

Oh... the moment that I saw them kiss
Oh... I knew it had to end like this

Preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
I couldn't help myself
When I saw him with her, with her
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
(River, river)
(River, river)

The writings on the wall, but it was his fault
How could anybody blame me
I swear to tell the truth, and if you only knew
I swear you'd do the same thing

Oh... if you give me one more chance
Oh... I'll never shoot him down again

Preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
I couldn't help myself
When I saw him with her, with her
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river

(Take me down)
(Take me down)
(Take me down)
(River, river)
(Take me down)

Preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
I couldn't help myself
When I saw him with her, with her
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
(River, river, river, river)
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
