Cool breeze on the river, ripples to the shore
Wash away my troubles to the sea forever more
Wind and willows whisper, sadness is the sound
Tell a tale of my once-happy world that's fallin' down
Old man, I might be going where you're bound

[Chorus]
Old man river, I've come to talk again
Yes I know you're tired 'cause your journey never ends
She's just like you, she's movin' all the time
And I think she's movin' me out of her mind

I wanna travel with you in your deep and inroad soul
That's the only way to make it peaceful like before
We used to touch at midnight, ah but now I feel she's gone
Even though she's lyin' next to me, I feel alone
Old man, it looks like time to travel on

[Chorus x2]

Oh I think she's movin' me out of her mind
Oh I think she's movin' me out of her mind
Oh I think she's movin' me out of her mind
