Lyrics

City Without a River

Been around following the water's edge
But where I live now there's just one catch
There ain't no port, a landlocked soul
A city without a river well there's no doubt at all
Well I said yeah, yeah you know it's true
City without a river blues

Give me Memphis in the days of old
Send me up to London when it ain't too cold
Don't matter if it's big or what it's called
If it's got a river then I'll call it home
Well I said yeah, yeah you know it's true
City without a river blues

If me and this town had seen better days
Nobody would bother to even say it to my face
People come around here but they can't see
What hanging around here is doing to me
Well I said yeah, yeah you know it's true
City without a river blues

City without a river it's such a sin
Once there was a river but they filled it in
Now I'm thinking to go somewhere
Sometimes I wonder what the missus would say
Well I said yeah, yeah you know it's true
City without a river blues
City without a river blues
