Take Me to the River
Eva Cassidy Lyrics


I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through
You stole my money my cigarettes
I haven't seen the worst of it yet

I want to know boy
Ah won't you tell me
Tell me how
How can I stay here with you
Won't you take me to the river
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Come put my feet back on the ground yeah

I don't know why you treat me so bad
After all the good times that we have had
Your sixteen candles they burn on my wall
Now who's the biggest fool of us all

I want to know
Won't you tell me
Tell me
How can I stay here with you

Won't you take me to the river
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground yeah

Hold me squeeze me
Love me and you can tease me
Till I can't take no more
Oh yeah yeah yeah

I don't know why I love you like I do
After all the changes you put me through
Love is a notion I can't forget
My sweet sixteen I would never regret

I want to know
Won't you tell me
Tell me
How can I stay here with you

Won't you take me to the river
Wash me down
Take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground yeah

Take me to the river
Wash me down
Won't you take me to the river
Put my feet back on the ground yeah

Eva Cassidy gained another fan in November 2020. This is my first time hearing her sing and I am in awe. May her voice live on forever.

Cee Jay

Welcome to The Magical Worldof Eva🥰 for me it was the 90’s

v c

Me too , 2021.

Bob Phillips

Besides her voice, one thing I admired about Eva was her uncanny ability to choose the right songs to cover. She had a very good ear for a good song, no matter what genre. You can tell she genuinely loved music and singing. I am so very sorry she is gone.

Nicolle Huminuik

Me too. Few like her. Maybe it was good she was unrecognized by the Music Industry. We, who heard and listened and loved her...we will take her music on.

Alex

What an incredible and singular talent she was! She was ‘unboxable’ and beyond genres— a transcendental voice with a matching authentic personality. They offered her the world, if she had only conformed to their commercial vision, but she had the strength of the spirit and the moral fiber to remain true to herself and her music.

CAM10

Absolutely Alex, if only she'd gave in a little and not been so stubborn, Eva could have set the world on fire with her vocal abilities.

B Miller

As Joseph Campbell would say, "That is the Hero's Path".

Paul Brough

WOW... Eva does the best version of every single song she performs. Unrivalled talent

Doug Persons

She's the most creative female blues singer of all time!!!! Can't stop listening to her!!!
