I Will Cross O'er The River

Anderson, John (USA)
I will cross o'er the river
And rest in the shade of the trees
There's someone 'cross that river
I can hear familiar voices calling me

I know I'll miss my family
I hope that they won't worry for too long
'Cause it's only 'cross the river
And I'll be that much closer to my home

I will cross o'er the river
I've got to make it to the other shore
There's something 'cross that river
That's powerful and cannot be ignored

I can see the grass is greener
A perfect spot is waiting there for me
I will cross o'er the river
And rest in the shade of the trees

No, it's not so big a river
It's not so deep and wide
I don't think I'll be coming back
From the other side

No, it's not so big a river
It's not so deep and wide
But I know I won't be coming back
From the other side

I will cross o'er the river
And rest in the shade of the trees
There's someone 'cross that river
I can hear familiar voices calling me

I know I'll miss my family
And I hope that they won't worry for too long
'Cause it's only 'cross the river
And I'll be that much closer to my home
It's only 'cross the river
And I'll be that much closer to my home
