Lyrics

I never much cared for my old home town
The memories from there only bring me down
I had to go to the river
I had to get to the river
I lived over here.
I lived over there.
I went far and wide. I
moved on a dare.
And then I went to the river
I finally found my way to the river
And found my home

I come from the west,
well hush my mouth
I used to think is was the best
Till I came down south
I had to go to the river
I had to get to the river

I love my baby
And she love me some
To us it never matter where your daddy come from
We had to go to the river
We had to get to the river to find our love.

I dreamed there was a river
Immense enough to be
A river to deliver all our troubles to the sea
It was a blue. Blue river.

I lived in the city
And I lived in the hills
The city, no pity,
And the hills no thrills
I had to go to the river
I had to get to the river

I lived in the desert, arid but free
Couldn’t quench my thirst so I fled to the sea
I had to go to the river
I had to get to the river
To find my soul

I dreamed there was a river
Immense enough to be
A river to deliver all our troubles to the sea
It was a blue. Blue river.

FYI:  There are several other musicians named John Cain. Internet searches can't distinguish between us. Therefore I started using my alternate name J. Riley Cain. It seems fitting since I moved to New Orleans. It sounds kind of "southern." Much of my catalogue of material is still found under the name John Cain.
