River Carry Me Away

Oh river, carry me away.
Far, far away;
Nothing is left for me here.
With your cold, rapid waters,
carry me quickly away from here.
Over the many rocks I shall not notice;
the waters chill my skin until I’m numb.
Carry me away to a better life.
Anywhere is better than here.
With your swiftly charted waters,
oh river, carry me away.
