River, Stay 'Way From My Door (Take 1)(Image of take 2)

(Harry Woods / Mort Dixon)


New Mayfair Orchestra

You keep goin' your way
I'll keep goin' my way
River, stay 'way from my door...Please

I just got a cabin
You don't need my cabin
Weary, river, stay 'way from my door

Don't come up any higher
Cos, I'm all alone
Leave me my bed and my fire
Cos, that's all that I own

I ain't breakin' your heart
Don't start breakin' my heart
Weary, river, stay 'way from my door
