Woman Across The River

Woman Across The River

The Allman Brothers Band

Across the river a good woman cried
All because a foolish man lied
She gave up everything
Everything that money could buy

But the man told so many lies
There's another man over there
That woman across the river
Sweet woman across the river, she was mine

Word got around that he had jilted her
Men came running from near and far
Should've never been so foolish
Guess I'll never

But the man that's got her now
He's a lucky so and so
That woman across the river
Sweet woman across the river, she was mine

I remember the other day, about a week ago
She said, "I don't even want to talk to you
'Cause I don't love you anymore"
That woman across the river
Sweet woman across the river, she was mine

Across the river a good woman cried
All because a foolish man lied
She gave up everything, tried to keep him satisfied
But the man told so many lies
There's another man over there

That woman across the river
That woman across the river
That woman across the river
Sweet woman across the river, she was mine
