Standin' on this bridge, starin' down into the dry riverbed
Tryin' to make some sense of all these thoughts that keep runnin' through my head
Like the water in the river, our love ran deep and strong
And like the water in the river, our love is all dried up and gone

Dry River, you can't wash away the pain
And you can't drown the fire of the secret that keeps burnin' in my brain
Pretty soon the world is gonna know just what a jealous man has done
And like this old Dry River, I ain't got no way to run

There's weeds and there's wildflowers growin' where the water used to flow
And if you know just where to look, what I tried so hard to hide is gonna show
The rocks have started shiftin', and the sand has started driftin' in the wind
And the body that I loved so much is comin' back and hauntin' me again

Dry River, you can't wash away the pain
And you can't drown the fire of the secret that keeps burnin' in my brain
Pretty soon the world is gonna know just what a jealous man has done
And like this old Dry River, I ain't got no way to run

And like this old Dry River, I ain't got no way to run

I ain't got no way to run
