Grass Roots, The - The River Is Wide Lyrics




The sky was clear on that windy day
Till the clear blue sky began to turn to gray
The lightening flashed, the thunder roared above
Then fell a drop of rain to start our love

Let the river get wide – the river gets long now
The water runs deep as our love gets strong now
So baby, don't you fight, and say you belong now to me

Upon the roof we heard the gentle rain
With the rhythm of our heartbeats, down it came
As it hit, each drop, our hearts could feel the pain
No one on Earth can stop a drop of rain

And the river gets wide – the river gets long now
The water runs deep as our love gets strong now
So baby, don't you fight, and say you belong now to me

Let the river get wide – the river gets long now
The water runs deep as our love gets strong now
So baby, don't you fight, and say you belong now to me, yeah

Let the river get wide – the river gets long now
The water runs deep as our love gets strong now
So baby, don't you fight, and say you belong now to me...

Grass Roots, The The River Is Wide Comments
  1. Damon Spencer

    So great to hear this in clear stereo. My copy of the Form's version sounds like mud.

  2. Dixie

    I always wondered who did this awesome version of this song!

  3. puppycat58

    So love this song after all these years Warren is hot...

  4. ipsurvivor

    Creed doesn’t look too happy...

  5. P Arsever

    Can some of today’s aspiring musicians take lessons from these great bands of the 60’s & 70’s ! We need music that speaks to us and gets our foot tapping. This is my favourite Grass Roots song.

  6. puppycat58

    Love this song.....Hottie warren

  7. Ross Johnson

    The first grass roots song I ever heard. Love it and awesome seeing Creed Bratton on bass!

  8. ramosa999

    This is why I love listening to the oldies station (on SiriusXM), because I can hear songs like this, that I know I haven't heard since 1969 because oldies radio stations never played it! The Grass Roots had so many great songs, but I forgot all about this one, and remember how much I loved listening to it when I heard it again today for the first time in 50 years! :D

    Dixie

    Same here! I rediscovered this song, 50 years later while researching Creed! Didn't know it was the Grass Roots!

  9. Mark Ward

    Frickin' Cool. Love it fellas, thank you!

  10. Jinny Bergan

    Rob and Warren were a great team. Warrens voice was amazing.They were the perfect group for that era.

    These guys really enjoyed working together. It's so obvious.
    Ill bet they had a great time touring together.

  17. Carolyn M

    You have to enjoy the interaction between these guys, like when Warren and Rick are cutting up, and Rob turns and catches them, then he is tickled, too. They were all so adorable!

  18. Linda St John

    Warren and Rick have always been my favorite band members! That's not to say that I didn't love Rob and Creed too! I knew Warren and Rick in the late 60's - memorable times indeed!

    Carolyn M

    Linda St John , everything about Warren was addicting! His voice, his smile, his intelligence, those eyes, his masculinity, his body, his Alpha Male attraction 😍😍😍😍😍
