or
Poco

I gotta get down on the river again
She's a true life giver, she's my only friend
When I'm hidin' out, I need a way to ride on out
From all that gunfire up on the land
Too much for one man to make a stand

I gotta get down on the river again, I'm a running man
Runnin' through the night, runnin' for my life
Seems it's worth a lot, to a man who's not forgot who I am
I gotta get down on the river again, I'm a running man

I been cheated by a dealer, black hearted man of a soul stealer
Kept me down in the game, until a voice called my name
I was holding my own on the losing end
Here comes the lady, she's a winning hand

I gotta get down on the river again, I'm a running man
Ride that dark lady down, roll on easy to another town
She's got wild and wistful ways, I'll take her any night or day
I gotta get down on the river again, I'm a running man
