Moody river, ooh, ooh Moody river, ooh, ooh (CHORUS) Moody river, more deadly Than the vainest knife Moody river, your muddy water Took my baby's life Last Saturday evening Came to the old oak tree It 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 (CHORUS) 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 A prayer on his lips And the glove of his Lost love at his fingertips (CHORUS)
