Don’t Cross That River
©2001 Janis Carper 

well there are some things in life that just wear you down
you can give up the fight or you can stand your ground
temptation is a river and it cuts right through
this world that we live in and it calls to you

don’t cross that river honey it’s too deep
you’ll get a cold shiver won’t let you sleep
don’t cross that river listen what I say
unless you wanna live in hell ‘til your dyin’ day

the water is muddy, it’ll pull you in
those bottom feeders living off your every sin
don’t let those shady banks fool you
where the river runs slow
this water won’t cool you, it’ll stain your soul

don’t cross that river honey it’s too deep
you’ll get a cold shiver won’t let you sleep
don’t cross that river listen what I say
unless you wanna live in hell ‘til your dyin’ day

stay to the high road if you know what’s good for you
don’t fall for fool’s gold, it’s a deed you can’t undo
don’t cross that river - don’t cross that river

there are some things in life that just wear you down
and this river, it might just let you drown
you’ll know that it’s too late when you feel the chill
nothing can save you but your own free will

don’t cross that river honey it’s too deep
you’ll get a cold shiver won’t let you sleep
don’t cross that river listen what I say
unless you wanna live in hell ‘til your dyin’ day
