All I need is a little tender touch
[???] we burn the coal
Oh, baby, I heard what you've been saying
and I know that we will be all right.

You are just a tired girl
and I am just a tired boy
And we ain't gonna let it fall
But you can't, but you can't let me take you down
'cause we got to take it slow

Oh but I, I am just working hard
and you, you
you're just working through it
And all of us,
ah, we just play it cool
Your love, my love, our love
oh, it's like a mighty river, baby.

Please, lord, can you hear my prayer?
Don't let it fall on deaf ears
But ain't nobody hearin' me
so I guess I'll just have to speak it.

She is just a pure girl
and I am just a dirty boy
And we're just tryin' to work it through
But there ain't, but there ain't no one to cut me
like the words that she used.

Oh but I, I am just working hard
and you, you
you've been just working, too
And all of us,
ah, we just play it cool
Your love, my love, our love
oh, it's like a mighty river, baby.

Gotta let it, let it flow,
Gotta let it, let it flow...

I know, I know
I've gotta, gotta
You've gotta let it flow,
I said let it flow.
