  Ralph Stanley And Friends: Clinch Mountain Country, Nashville TN - 30.nov.1997  

I sit here alone on the banks of the river
The lonseome wind blows and the water runs high
I can hear a voice callin' out there in the darkness
But i sit here alone too lonesome to cry.

Oh the water rolls high on the river at midnight
I sit on the shore to grieve an' to cry
The woman i love she left me this morning
With no one to love or kiss me good night.

We met there one night on the banks of the river
Sat there holdin' hands and makin' a vow
That we never would part and be happy together
But the new love she's found, she's gone with him now.

Oh the water rolls high on the river at midnight
I sit on the shore to grieve an' to cry
The woman i love she left me this morning
With no one to love or kiss me good night.
