I'm With Her

"Crossing Muddy Waters"

Baby's gone and I don’t know why
She lit out this morning
Like a rusty shot in a hollow sky
She left me without warning
Sooner than the dogs could bark
And faster than the sun rose
Down to the banks in an old mule cart
She took a flatboat 'cross the shallows

Left me in my tears to drown
She left a baby daughter
Now the river's wide and deep and brown
She’s crossing muddy waters

Tobacco standing in the fields
Be rotten come November
And a bitter heart will not reveal
A spring that love remembers
When that sweet brown girl of mine
Hair black as a raven
We broke the bread and drank the wine
From a jug that she'd been saving

She left me in my tears to drown
She left a baby daughter
Now the river's wide and deep and brown
She's crossing muddy waters

Baby's crying and the daylight's gone
That big oak tree is groaning
In rush of wind and a river of song
I can hear my true love moaning
Crying for her baby child
Or crying for her husband
Crying for that river wild
To take her from her loved ones

She left me in my tears to drown
She left a baby daughter
Now the river's wide and deep and brown
She's crossing muddy waters

Left me in my tears to drown
She left a baby daughter
Now the river’s wide and deep and brown
She’s crossing muddy waters
Now the river's wide and deep and brown
She’s crossing muddy waters
