Williams, Hank - Lost On The River Lyrics




Lost on the river
Dark is the night
Just like the blind
Praying for sight
Drifting alone
Heart filled with strife
I'm lost on the river
The river of life

Once dear I thought
I knew the way
But that was before
Old sad yesterday
Words that you told me
Cut like a knife
I'm lost on the river
The river of life

Out on this river
Where sorrow creeps
Thiinking of you
And how my heart weeps
Tomorrow you'll be
Another man's wife
And I'm lost on the river
The river of life

Williams, Hank Lost On The River Comments
  1. Hunter Duncan

    Lost on the river
    Dark is the night
    Just like the blind
    Praying for sight
    Drifting alone
    Heart filled with strife
    I'm lost on the river
    The river of life

    Once dear I thought
    I knew the way
    But that was before
    Old sad yesterday
    Words that you told me
    Cut like a knife
    I'm lost on the river
    The river of life

    Out on this river
    Where sorrow creeps
    Thinking of you
    And how my heart weeps
    Tomorrow you'll be
    Another man's wife
    And I'm lost on the river
    The river of life

  5. R N C

    I was the like that made it 1k😎😎😎

  6. Steve Roberts

    Agree with those who believe that Hank was a great poet. I wonder if he ever met Woody Guthrie. He, too, was a great folk poet. Two giants.

  7. Bill Brown

    Wonderful singer

  8. An McCLO

    found in forever
    loving thanks, knowing,
    the need I, wisp
    and wait by
    better holy stories,
    wonders, dark
    circles, wondering, my
    night life away
    I, search in,
    peace, to be found
    I'm just a
    do it again ugly
    for loving, the gains, missing, meaning,

  10. Wade Raney

  11. J R

    We have all been lost on the river of life. Hank wrote poetry from his soul.

    Dc Krow

    i'm still lost but i found my way here.

  12. richard l valimont jr

    Just a dumb question but what was Hanks guitar manufacturer? I'm guessing a Gibson or maybe a Martin

    Tolkien Fan

    I'm not sure but I think Martin

  13. Jean felipe

    Lost on the river, dark is the night
    Just like the blind, praying for sight
    Drifting alone, heart filled with strife
    I'm lost on the river the river of life

    Once dear I thought I knew the way
    That was before ole sad yesterday
    Words that you said cut like a knife
    I'm lost on the river the river of life

    Out on this river where sorrow creeps
    Thinking of you and how my heart weeps
    Tomorrow you'll be another man's wife
    And I'm lost on the river the river of life

  17. destiny medula

    Love hANK

  18. mingulay29

    Hank was the poet of sadness. He was so sensitive and talented he burned himself out by the age of 30. Some geniuses are so generous that they give us what remains of their possible lives to forever listen and revere.

  19. Ben S Hammonds

    backwoods poet supreme

  20. caleb wilson

    Erica Conley

    Chris Lowry

    Down in middle Tn there's a radio station that's plays his songs sometimes

  21. SuperBobcat64

    Tolkien Fan

    beats me. I'm obsessed with this song !

  29. Quay SMITH JR.

    at 58 sec can anyone tell me if there is any recording with hank sr. playing an elc; guitar?

    Connor Arroyo

    Hank never played an electric guitar near as I can tell.. his backup band might have had one, but it was mainly Don Helms on Steel, Jerry Rivers on fiddle, and Hezzy on bass.. Hank mainly played accoustic

    32a34a

    @Connor Arroyo Jerry Byrd on Steel before Don. As far as I am concerned Don Helms
    may be the greatest Steel guitarist ever.

  30. Shyanne Quilt

  33. Nora Brockhaus

  34. His Overlord Upon High

    I know when my Dad was young, he used to listen to Hank. My Dad passed in 1998. He was born in Jan 1929, and a Korea veteran.

  35. Rossm3838

    @NNocona It does indeed. Hank loved those old hymns and could well have been influenced by it.

  36. adamtzsch

    The best thing he ever did, despite Audrey. Just beautiful.
