I left as soon as I was strong
Off to see the land beyond
I took a road way up on high
Bodies lying either side
I stood and wondered how could I
Cross the river to the other side
Cross the river to the other side

A road like this can be a friend
Taking journeys home again
Or else you give it one more try
Risk it all to satisfy
Waiting till the cloak of night
To cross the river to the other side
Cross the river to the other side

I call out loud, "A man is down
I saw his robe and ruby crown."
But no one listened, no one tried
Unless the money's not all right
We'll hit borders every mile
To cross the river to the other side
Cross the river to the other side

Well all the things I'd want for you
I only wish some lives got through
Still I hold my head up high
Hands for baby little life
I know you're waiting there till I
Cross the river to the other side
Cross the river to the other side
