Anne Murray - I Can See Arkansas Lyrics




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

    Was looking for Steve Wariner's version of this, which I found on YouTube a couple of years ago, but it looks like the lawyers have pulled most of his recordings off YouTube. This one is nice, though. Thanks.
