Song title: Many rivers to cross

(Cliff) by Jimmy Cliff

Many rivers to cross - 15-Apr-1993 version

Many rivers to cross
and I can’t seem to find my way home.
Wandering, I’m lost
as I travel along
the white cliffs of Dover

Many rivers to cross
and it’s only my wind that keeps me alive.
Oh, I’ve been hurt, struggled, ill
and it’s only my pride that lets me survive.

And loneliness won’t leave me alone,
it’s such a drag to be on your own
my baby left, and she wouldn’t say why,
Now all I can do now is cry...

Many rivers to cross
and I can’t seem to find my way home.
Wandering, I’m lost
as I travel along
the white cliffs of Dover
Many rivers to cross
And I can't find my faith
Many rivers to cross
Oh there's so, so many rivers to cross

Notes: This is the typical Bruce version


Many rivers to cross - Original Cliff version

There’s so many rivers to cross
and I can’t seem to find my way home.
Wandering, I’m lost
as I travel along
the white cliffs of Dover

Many rivers to cross
and it’s only my wind that keeps me alive.
I’ve been hurt, washed up for years
and it’s only my pride that lets me survive.

And this loneliness won’t leave me alone,
it’s such a drag to be on your own
my baby left, and she wouldn’t say why,
Now all I do is cry...

I’ve got many rivers to cross
and it’s only my wind that keeps me alive
I’ve got so many rivers to cross,
oh, so many rivers to cross…
