Across the river, a good woman cried,
All because a foolish man had lied.
She gave up all she had, to show how much she cared,
But the man told so many lies, now another man is over there.
That woman across the river,
Sweet woman across the river, she was mine.
Word got around, that he had jilted her
And men came running, came running from near and far
How could i be such a fool, i'll never never never know
That the man, he's got to know, he's a lucky so and so,
That woman across the river...
I met her one day, about a week ago
She said "i don't even want to talk to you,
Cause i don't love you any more",
that woman across the river...
