River

It's comin' on Christmas
Their cuttin' down trees
Their puttin' up reindeer
And singin' song of joy and peace Oh
I wish I had a river I could skate
away on

It don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm gonna make a lot of money
And then I'm gonna quit this crazy
scene Oh I wish I had a river I could
skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I could teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried so hard to help me, you know
He put me at ease And he loved me so
Lord He made me weak in the knees Oh
I wish I had a river I could skate
away on

I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad
Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had Oh I wish I had a
river I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby say goodbye

It's comin' on Christmas
Their cuttin' down trees
Their puttin' up reindeer
And singin' songs of joy and peace Oh
I wish I had a river I could skate
away on
Skate away on
