I'm going down to the river
Gonna take me my rocking chair
Going down to the river
Gonna take me my rocking chair
And if those blues don't leave me
Gonna rock on away from here

(Ah, yeah yeah, ah...I love you)

If you want me, woman
Please don't act so shy
If you want me, woman
Please don't pass me by
I love those sideways glances
Your shoulder and your thigh

(Ah, yeah yeah, ah...I love you)

I see inside your eyes
The Baba Sai
The reasons why I love you

So if you're still busy hiding
What it is you've got
If you're frightened of losing
What you like a lot
You may be cruisin' backwards
While thinking that you're not

(Ah, yeah yeah, ah...I love you)

I see into your eyes
The Baba Sai
The reasons why I love you

So if you don't get the picture
You won't know what I feel
If you don't get the picture
Then you won't have a depth of field
You may be going some place
Some place you've already been

(Ah, yeah yeah, ah...I love you)

    General CommentAbout a woman the narrator is interested in, who is so afraid of making a mistake when it comes to relationships that she won't even start anything in the first place, nor admit to her feelings at all.

    He's saying he's into her and would be interested in starting something, but as long as she's holding herself back, they'll never go anywhere.

    A lot of times people who hold things back seem to think they're saving themselves heartache, but what we often don't realize is that by holding things back, we're often causing ourselves heartache in the long run.

    ...So he goes outside to a nice spot and sits in a rocking chair and tries to forget his cares. Such a simple concept and so true. I love the way he works in "I love you" at the end of his sighs.
