"Down to the River" as written by Matthew Fleener, Ryan Fleener and Jaren Johnston....
I'm sick of tryin',
And I'm six feet short of dyin'
This world don't care if I'm cryin'
So tell me where does a broken man go?

I don't understand, (muddy water)
I guess I'm kind of like my old man (I'm a-comin')
Gonna live and die just workin' my bare hands (muddy water)
So tell me where does a broken man go?

I'm goin' down to the river, down to the river
That old muddy water gonna clear my mind
Down to the river, down to the river
And hope my troubles just float on by
Oh please just float on by

When was young,
this world was just a steppin stone
You could keep what you call and take it home
So tell me where did that world go?

Well at 21, (muddy water)
That preacher took me back and dunk my head (I'm a-comin')
I gotta get that feeling back again (muddy water)
'Cause this city tryin' to take my soul

I'm goin' down to the river, down to the river
That old muddy water gonna clear my mind
Down to the river, down to the river
And watch my troubles just float on

I'm goin' down to the river, down to the river
That old muddy water gonna clear my mind
Down to the river, down to the river
And watch my troubles just float on by
Oh please just float on by

Oh that muddy water that old delta queen
I'm a-comin' it's gonna sit me free

Oh that muddy water that old delta queen
I'm a-comin' it's gonna sit me free

I'm goin' down to the river, down to the river
That old muddy water gonna clear my mind
Down to the river, down to the river
And hope my trouble float on

I'm goin' down to the river, down to the river
That old muddy water gonna clear my mind
Down to the river, down to the river
And watch my trouble float on by
Oh please just float on by
