Eric Clapton - River Runs Deep Lyrics




Well, the river runs deep and the water is cold as ice
The river runs deep and the water is cold as ice
I go down there every chance I get
It's where my baby she met her death
And the river runs deep and the water's cold as ice

Ain't no woman gonna make a fool out of me
Ain't no woman gonna make a fool out of me
Running 'round, that's what they said
She's at the bottom of the river dead
And the river runs deep and the water's cold as ice

No cheating woman gonna get a good man down
No cheating woman gonna get a good man down
Running 'round like a silly fool
You're gonna end up at the bottom of the pool
And the river runs deep and the water's cold as ice

Eric Clapton River Runs Deep Comments
  1. Zoe Dodds

    Oh I love this song. I’m a post-modern woman & all that drama, but when I listen to this song, I’m the man plunging his woman into the icy water. xxxx

  2. Ace Harris

    This would work so well with Red Dead Redemption 2. Has such a cinematic, cowboy movie feel to it.

  3. Duke Lindemann

    ... i prefer the J.J. Cale original version... But Eric is Eric... ❤️

    Ace Harris

    Luca Dante Lindemann JJ is on this track. They blended their vocals like they did on Road to Escondido.

  9. Henry Bergman

    As far as i remember this is a song written by JJ cale...Nice but a JJ song  and a cover in this  case .of a JJCALE song .

    Hugh Jorgen

    NO body `does it like jj Cale.. pretty good version though!!

    Henry Bergman

    Hugh : : yes you are right but what makes me wonder is why Kanal von Maexle puts the name Eric Clapton and forgot to mention this is a cover of JJ,s In my opinion Clapton may be thankfull for all the songs JJ wrote because thanks to JJ he clearly made a comercial come back once with After midnight. and Cocaine .Now after the death of JJ Clapton again Clapton enjoys attention over the music of JJ.Cale ....JJ was the original and not an attention seeking comercial as Clapton is. I am not at all a Clapton fan.... Clapton is way too noisy and mainstream compared to JJ and somehow boring as i feel it but JJ,s music was with me since his first Album came out in the beginning of the 70 ties and never left me.Years later Dire Straights came out with a very similar way of playin things to what JJ did and again this sort of copy style never touched me as JJ did touch .JJ is and was the real thing,I am still very surprised how many people do not know who JJ was but all know Claptons mainstream blue eyed square flat blues ...I

    Scot Killough

    Henry Bergman: Says "Clapton enjoys attention over the music of JJ.Cale" Yes he might a bit, But a lot more for ALL those people that never heard of JJ and for the love of the music of JJ Cale EC was his friend at the end. JJ's widow gave EC unreleased recordings of JJ. They call me the breeze is a fine album. whatever.

    Eneri Giilaan

    To left JJ out of the credits is even more striking as he is actually playing and singing with EC here.

    Does that mean he killed that woman? By throwing her into water? Man, that cold

  11. Grind Mode Lizard

    I'm feeling this.

  12. Juan Pablo Perez

    "The river runs deep and the water is cold as ice." is stuck in my head

  13. ghiovana maria

    River runs deep !

  14. Pathfinder747 Terry

                                 The River of no Return
                                       Cheating woman
                           Gonna get a good man down

  15. Pathfinder747 Terry

            Cheating woman
    Gonna get a good man down

  16. Cornel Bébié

    "The river runs deep and the water is cold as ice" tells you a lot about your own life isn't it ? Get on the swing, take it easy and the pain will ease away...

  17. David Zilz

    dayum this song just wont leave my head "when the river runs deep and the water is cold as ice" :3

  18. Planet MK

    yes, a really great jj Cale song!

  19. Ninja Sushi

    Very mellow man. I dig it..

  20. min kim

    great.

  21. FrederickDefraeye

    Actually, you need to consider the fact that Clapton's covering of Cale's song, did a lot to introduce Cale's music to a wider audience. Moreover, I think that someone like Clapton covering your song(s) is to be regarded as a great honour.

  22. Evan Lasrich

    Six Blade Knife is a great song and it is similar to this. Mark Knopfler has said that JJ Cale was an influence to him, and JJ Cale has said that instead of taking his songs like most do (Clapton), Knopfler instead took his sound. JJ Cale is a living legend.
