River (Travis)

It's coming on Christmas They're cutting down trees They're putting up reindeer And singing songs of joy and peace I wish I had a river I could skate away on Now it don't snow here It stays pretty green I'm gonna make a lotta money And I'm gonna quit this crazy scene I wish I had a river I could skate away on I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on I made my baby cry She tried hard to help me She put me at ease And she loved me so naughty She made me weak in the knees I wish I had a river I could skate away on I'm so hard to handle I'm selfish, I'm sad And I've gone and lost the best baby that I ever had I wish I had a river I could skate away on I wish I had a river so long I would teach my feet to fly Oh I wish I had a river I could skate away on I made my baby say goodbye It's coming on Christmas They're cutting down trees They're putting up reindeer And singing songs of joy and peace I wish I had a river I could skate away on
