Cooper, Alice - Goin' To The River Lyrics




Well I'm goin' to the river gonna jump overboard and drown
Yes I'm goin' to the river gonna jump overboard and drown
Because the girl I love she's gone and leave his down
Now when she left me I bowed my head and cried
When she left me I bowed my head and cried
I never thought I'd be I would be the one to cry
So if you see my baby tell her tell her goodbye for me
If you see my baby tell her tell her goodbye for me
'cause I'm tired of livin' livin' in misery
Yes I'm goin' to the river gonna jump overboard and drown
Yes I'm goin' to the river gonna jump overboard and drown
Because the girl I love she's gone and leave his down
Now when she left me I bowed my head and cried
When she left me I bowed my head and cried
I never thought I'd be I would be the one to cry
So if you see my baby tell her tell her goodbye for me
If you see my baby tell her tell her goodbye for me
'cause I'm tired of livin' livin' livin' in misery
That's why I'm goin' to the river gonna jump overboard and drown
Yes I'm goin' to the river gonna jump overboard and drown
Because the girl I love she's gone and leave his down

Cooper, Alice Goin' To The River Comments
  1. Keith Otis Edwards

    This is not Alice Cooper, it’s Gene Vincent.

    Cthulhu 669

    Whoever sang the original, if you eat some good acid, the album Freakout Song, which is the album I first heard this on, will fuck with your brain good ;)

  2. Kim Jong Un

    Don't know how many times I got duped into buying this album. They kept changing labels, album cover, song titles to sell this for thirty years.

  3. Robert Drake

    Ronnie Hawkins and the Hawks recorded in 1965.

  4. Josh Wood

    Welcome to my nightmare

  5. John Goodenberger

    Although this is Ronnie Hawkins, the lyrics do sound like something Alice wrote.

    André .T

    Isnt it a Fats Domino song ?

  6. Brittany Swanson

    Go Ronnie!

  7. John Hooks Hooks

    Ain't that just like a woman wasn't his either.

  8. John Hooks Hooks

    I met Alice and asked him about this. He said the record company had simply put it and at least one other song on the album without his consent.

    John Hooks Hooks Right.Sure.

  9. Mistah Pink

    Yep, but it's really on the album. Don't know why either.
