I will take you down to the river.
I will take you down.
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome town.

A cold wind was blowing, black clouds lay on the ground.
I was hellbent and you were heaven bound.
I sold my baby, sold my baby to the night.

I will take you down to the river.
I will take you down.
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome town.

You grabbed at my hand, as I held you under.
A watery grave for you to slumber.
I hushed my baby.
Sold my baby to the night.

I will take you down to the river.
I will take you down.
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome town.

The terror and the passion, shaking were my hands.
My evil deed.
Her death I did demand.
I cried a river in which she drown.

I will take you down to the river.
I will take you down.
I will take you down to the river, down to lonesome town.
