So pray, go on, take it to the river,
but I swear you'll never see me there again.
*Whistle*
And if I'm a fool for leaving you
then a fool I'd rather have been.
*Whistle*
And I don't know if it's true
but I may have loved you.

They say you've been living up the street.
Well, I'm sorry boy, yes, indeed.
Back from the war, and down by the creek.
Well, a 'sorry' ain't what you need.
Heard you've been trying to tell the truth
but I think I've 'bout had it with you.

So take a good look behind you.
This day is done and this year is almost through.
*Whistle*
By the time you realize what you want inside,
I'll be washing my hands of you,
thanking God that we're through.
*Whistle*

They say you've been living up the street.
Well, I'm sorry boy, yes, indeed.
Back from the war, and down by the creek.
Well, a 'sorry' ain't what you need.
Heard you've been trying to tell the truth
but I think I've 'bout had it with you.

*Whistle*

I know that you want me back
but, babe, it ain't like that.
And I know that it's hard to grasp
but you just ain't no catch.

They say you've been living up the street.
Well, I'm sorry boy, yes, indeed.
Back from the war, and down by the creek.
Well, a 'sorry' ain't what you need.
Heard you've been trying to tell the truth
but I think I've 'bout had it with you.

*Whistle*
