Lyrics

I'm walking the edge with my mind on fire This is too real to be a dream How well I knew her doesn't matter now Things are never what they seem What makes a man do the things he does Well I'm sure that I can't say So I'm going down to the river tonight Try to wash my sins away Chorus When I said good-bye to that cold hearted woman I said good-bye to my soul When I said good-bye to that cold hearted woman I sacrificed my soul There's no use in running, what is done is done No regrets can change the deed But when she threw it all into my face She planted a vicious seed But I will not go to the gallows I'll do things my own way So I'm going down to the river tonight Try to wash my sins away Chorus W'oh, river wash my sins away W'oh, river wash my sins away I think of all the things that might have been Down by the river's edge I whisper her name just one more time As I tumble off the ledge As the river carries me downstream It's forgiveness for which I pray And as the procession is ending I'm not sure my sins have been washed away
