Lost on the River 
by Hank Williams   [3/4 time]          
C                   F           C
Lost on the river   dark is the night
Just like the blind  prayin' for sight
C                F                 C
Driftin' along   heart filled with strife
                           G7       C
I'm lost on the river  the river of life
                      F          C
Once dear I thought   I knew the way
But that was before  ole sad yesterday
C                        F          C
Words that you told me   cut like a knife
                           G7       C
I'm lost on the river  the river of life
                   F            C
Out on this river  where sorrow creeps
Thinking of you  and how my heart weeps
  C                 F            C
Tomorrow you'll be another man's wife
                               G7       C
And I'm lost on the river  the river of life

Repeat #2
