The River's Too Wide

The River's Too Wide

Sammy Davis, Jr.

The river's too wide now for crossin'
The water rushed too loud for talkin'
We never built bridges for walkin'
Now the river's too wide

A gentle stream once flowed between us
But love could cross it easily
Till stormy skies brought bitter teardrops
And made that stream a ragin' river
Come between you and me

The river's too wide now for crossin'
The water rushed too loud for talkin'
We never built bridges for walkin'
There's no getting' to the other side

The river's too wide for crossin'
The hurtin' goes too deep for mendin'
It looks like an unhappy endin'
`Cos the river's too wide

Good lessons learned are not forgotten
We gave up love to save our pride
Next time I'm faced with risin' water
I'll build a bridge of love and kindness
Reachin' to the other side

And the river's too wide now for crossin'
The water rushed too loud for talkin'
We never built bridges for walkin'
There's no getting' to the other side

The river's too wide for crossin'
The hurtin' goes too deep for mendin'
It looks like an unhappy endin'
`Cos the river's too wide
