Lyrics

Took Me To The River

Written By: Siddy Bennett

Took Me To The River

Oh he took me to the river, and he told me of his thoughts
‘Think he wanted a religion, ‘think he wanted a response
I was quiet in the distance; I was quiet coz I was thinking
“You are not the one for me”.

Well we could have been together, with a ring up on my finger
Could have loved each other, God I even loved his mother!
I was born to fear the demon
When I was born, that’s what I’m told
Now I’m torn between the demon and love.

God don’t leave me this way, come into my head
I wasn’t born to be ashamed, | wasn’t brought up that way
That wasn’t me.

Well we grew things in his garden, a thousand words and pardons
But the sparks’ not there, the sparks’ not there,
‘Should have left me in the gutter, with a wicked tongue and an apron
I should’ve loved, I could’ve loved, but I couldn’t love.
