ALISON KRAUSS lyrics - River In The Rain

ALISON KRAUSS
"River In The Rain"
(Roger Miller)

[Originally by Roger Miller]

River in the rain
Sometimes at night you look like a long white train
Winding your way away somewhere
River I love you don't you care

If you're on the run
Winding some place just tryin' to find the sun
Whether the sunshine whether the rain
River I love you just the same

[Chorus:]
But sometimes in a time of trouble
When you're out of hand and your muddy bubbles
Roll across my floor
Carryin' away the things I treasure
Hell there ain't ain't no way to measure
Why I love you more than I did the day before

River in the rain
Sometimes at night you look like a long white train
Winding your way away from me
River I've never seen the sea

[Chorus]
