  • There's a natural wonder between us
    But it doesn't seem natural to me
    That you can walk away from the love we made
    Here in Tennessee

    And leave everything that we worked for
    To start a brand new life
    I saw you drive across the Memphis bridge
    But I don't believe my eyes

    Oh, I can see Arkansas across the Mississippi
    I can see a big river barge headin' down to new Orleans
    I can see the cotton fields on the other side
    And the sun going down again

    Oh, I can see Arkansas
    But I still don't see
    Why the love we had should end

    If it proved how much I love you
    I'd swim this ol' river tonight
    I'd bet my soul against the undertow
    For the chance to hold you tight

    But there's more than a river between us
    And I can't swim that far
    And as hard as I try I just can't drown
    The memories of where you are

    Oh, I can see Arkansas across the Mississippi
    I can see a big river barge headin' down to new Orleans
    I can see the cotton fields on the other side
    And the sun going down again

    Oh, I can see Arkansas
    But I still don't see
    Why the love we had should end
