"Many Rivers to Cross" as written by and Jimmy Cliff....
Many rivers to cross
But I just 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
Well, I`ve been licked, washed up for years
And I merely survived 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 and she didn't say why
Well, I guess I have to try

Sweet thing
Sweet thing

And this loneliness just won`t leave me alone
You know it's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left me but she didn't say why
So I guess I have to try, try

Many (many), many (many) rivers to cross (many rivers to cross)
But just where to begin?
I am playing for time
There have been times I found myself sitting in limbo
Alone, alone, for my lifetime

Many rivers to cross
But I just can`t seem to find
My way over
Wandering, I am lost as I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover, yeah
I got too many rivers to cross
