I'm going down to my river
Back to where I began, I began
And I'm gonna sink my feet right in
That there delta river bed, river bed

And if I, if I don't come on back
You will know where my soul is at rest

Now I've been trying to make a home
From a rented apartment on a Brooklyn third floor
But no new paint and no furniture
Can build be a home like the on that I come from

And if I, if I don't come on back
You will know that my soul is at rest
Oh soul at rest

Oh now all this time I spent waiting around
Well you don't gotta wait for me now
And all that time I spent messing around
Well you don't have to wait, well you don't have to wait

'Cause I'm going down now to my river
Lord, back to where I began, I began
And I'm gonna sink my feet right in
That there delta river bed, river bed

And if I, if I don't come on back
You will know that my soul is at rest
Oh honey now, don't you know where you can find me at?
Oh my darling now, don't you know that my soul be at rest?
Oh yes it is
