River, Stay ‘Way from My Door

Writer(s): H. Woods / M. Dixon

You keep goin’ your way – I’ll keep goin’ my way
(I’ll keep goin’ my way, you keep rollin’ your way)
River, stay ‘way from the door
I just got (me) a cabin – you don’t need my (you’ll never need that) cabin
River, stay ‘way from the door
Don’t (you) come up any higher – I’m so all alone
Leave the bed and the fire – that is all I own (and you can have that phone)
I ain’t breakin’ your heart – don’t (you) start breakin’ my heart
River, stay ‘way from the door
(Stay ‘way, get ‘way, roll ‘way, stay ‘way)
(You dirty, old, muddy river, you)
(River, stay ‘way from the door)
