I can't find no river (gospel)
Lyrics
No river to take me home (gospel version)
© 2010 Bruce Mills (SOCAN BMI)

I can't find no river long enough to take me home
Back to where my heart and soul come from - no, no, no
But when I find that river - someday soon, it's gonna flow
And take me to the place - to the place
I need to go

Oh, oh, oh -

I can't find no ladder high enough to reach the sky
Above the clouds - to the promise land - where angels fly
But when I find that ladder - someday soon, I'm gonna be
In a mansion that my Father -that my Father
Made for me

Chorus:
I'm believing that a river will lead me safely home
Give me comfort when I'm struggling on my own
I'm believe that a ladder will take me up to glory
So I stay close to Jesus and His sweet gospel story

Reprise or Improvise with instruments
I can't find no river ...
When I find that river - someday soon
Gonna take me to the place I need to go

I can't find no railway that travels the whole distance
From here to the station at the end - no, no, no, no
But if that train should come along - I'm waiting here - by the tracks
Once I board that train
I ain't never coming back

Chorus:
I believe that a river will lead me safely home
Give me comfort when I'm struggling on my own
I believe that a ladder gonna take me up to glory
So, I'm walking close to Jesus - I hear his sweet, sweet gospel story

I can't find no river long enough to take me home
Back to where my heart and soul come from - no, no, no
But when I find that river - someday soon, it's gonna flow
And take me to the place - to the place
I need to go
Oh river flow - yeah, yeah, yeah
And take me to the place -to the place
I need to go
