Jimmy Cliff - Many Rivers To Cross

Many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find, my way over
Wandering, I am lost, as I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover

Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will, that keeps me alive
I've been licked, washed up for years
And I merely survive, because of my pride

But I, loneliness won't leave me alone
It's such a drag to be on your own
My woman left and she didn't say why
Well I guess I gotta try

Many rivers to cross
But just where to begin, I'm playing for time
There'll be times when I'll find myself
Thinking of committing, some dreadful crime

Yes, I've got many rivers to cross
But I can't seem to find my way over
Wandering, I am lost as I travel along
The white cliffs of Dover
