When I awke this a morning
The rain was a pouring down
I was gonna wed the little river girl
Just over the bridge across town.

Now, I'm a runnin' up and down the river
And my nerves are drivin' me wild
Because the bridge washed out, I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side.

Rain. Oh rain, stop a fallin'
Dark clouds hurry from the sky
The preacher and my bride is a waitin'
And the weddin' bells are starting to chime.

I can't kiss and hold her
And it's driving me out of my mind
The bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side.

--- Instrumental ---

Now I got one foot in the water
The other foot solid on the ground
When I try to swim that ragin' ol' river
I know if I try I'd drown.

There's not a boat around me
They walked on out with the tide
And the bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side.

Rain. Oh rain, stop a fallin'
Dark clouds hurry from the sky
The preacher and my bride is a waitin'
And the weddin' bells are starting to chime.

I can't kiss and hold her
And it's driving me out of my mind
The bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side.

The bridge washed out and I can't swim
And my baby's on the other side...
