THE RIVER'S TOO WIDE (Bob Morrison) Sammy Davis Jr. Also recorded by: Olivia Newton-John 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 (Brief Musical Break) 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 (Contributed/Transcribed by Bill Huntley - September 2005)
