  • Oh, oh, woah, oh oh
    I've got a lover way over there on the mountain side
    And I know that's where I should be
    Don't you know
    I've got a lover way over there across the river wide
    I can hear her calling to me
    Oh, she's calling my name (calling my name)
    So sweet so plain (calling my name) I can hear her saying
    (Come to me, baby)
    I'm on my way
    (Come to me baby)
    I'm gonna stay
    (Come to me baby) ah

    They tell me that the river's too deep
    And it's much too wide
    Boy, you can't get across to the other side
    But they don't know I got to get there
    And hold her in my arms just one more time
    Like I did before when she was mine, all mine
    'Cause I can hear her saying
    (Come to me baby)
    I'm on my way
    (Come to me baby)
    I'm gonna stay
    (Come to me baby)
    I'm gonna get to you
    (Come to me baby)
    No matter what I have to do
    (Come to me baby)

    Oh, they tell me that the river's too deep
    And it's much too wide
    Boy, you can't make it over to the other side
    But they don't know I got to get there
    And hold her in my arms just one more time
    Like I did before when she was mine, all mine
    'Cause I can hear her saying
    (Come to me baby)
    I'm on my way
    (Come to me baby)
    I'm gonna stay
    (Come to me baby)
    Oh, baby when I get there
    I'm going nowhere
    Oh, oh, 'cause the river ain't deep enough
    Oh, nothing's deep enough to keep me from your side
    Ah, ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya Writer/s: BERRY GORDY JR, BERRY JR GORDY, SMOKEY ROBINSON, WILLIAM ROBINSON JR.
