John Fogerty — Moody River lyrics

[Chorus:]
Moody river, more deadly than the vainest knife
Moody river, your muddy water took my baby's life
[ Lyrics from: http://www.lyricsty.com/john-fogerty-moody-river-lyrics.html ]
Last Saturday evenin' came to the old oak tree
It stands beside the river where you were to meet me
On the ground your glove I found with a note addressed to me
It read "Dear love, I've done you wrong, now I must set you free"
No longer can I live with this hurt and this sin.
I just couldn't tell you that guy was just a friend"

[Chorus]

I looked into the muddy water and what could I see?
I saw a lonely, lonely face just lookin' back at me
Tears in his eyes and a prayer on his lips
And the glove of his lost love at his fingertips

[Chorus]
