Eddy Arnold Moody River Lyrics

Last updated: 02/15/2005 10:00:00 AM

Moody River more deadly than the vainest knife
Moody River your muddy water took my baby's life

Last Saturday evening I came to the old oak tree
That stands beside the river where you were to meet me
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
[ piano ]
Moody River more deadly...

I looked into the muddy water and what could I see
I saw a lonely lonely face just looking back at me
Tears in his eyes and the prayer on his lips
And the glove of his lost love at his fingertips
[ piano ]
Moody River more deadly...
