Eddy Arnold - "Moody River" lyrics

(Gary D. Bruce)

Moody River more deadly
Than the natalest night
Took my baby's life.
Moody River your muddy water

Last Saturday evening
I came to the old oak tree
Where you were to meet me.

That stands beside the river
On the ground your glove I found
With a note addressed to me
It read dear love I've done you wrong
Now I must set you free.
No longer can I live

With this hurt and this sin
I just couldn't tell you
That guy was just a friend.
--- Instrumental ---

Moody River more deadly
Than the natalest night
Moody River your muddy water
Took my baby's life.

I looked into the muddy water
And what could I see
I saw a lonely, lonely face
Just looking back at me.
And the glove of his lost love

And the prayer on his lips
Tears in his eyes
At his fingertips.

--- Instrumentl ---
Moody River more deadly

Than the natalest night
Took my baby's life...Moody River your muddy water
