Many Rivers to Cross
Joe Cocker Lyrics


Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find my way over
Wandering, I'm lost
As I travel along the white cliffs of dover

Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will that keeps me alive
I've been ripped, washed up for years
And I merely survive because of my pride
And this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left me, but she wouldn't say why
Guess I'll just break right down and cry

Many rivers to cross
But just where to begin
I'm playing for time
There have been times I find myself
Thinking of committing some terrible crime

Still this loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My girl left me, but she wouldn't say why
Guess I'll just break right down and cry

Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find my way over
Wandering, I am lost
As I travel along the white cliffs of dover

Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will that keeps me alive
I've been ripped, washed up for years
And I merely survive because of my pride

I'm a retired, Vietnam Veteran, 72 years young, and Joe brings water to my eyes, in his rendition of this song. RIP Joe.

Joe Cocker is one of the greatest blues singer ever. Jimmy Cliff, the writer of this song can not be out done..The emotion and soul he delivers when he sings it.. Joe Cocker will never be forgotten..GOD bless you, JOE.
