(Delta Goodrem, David Hodges, Steven Solomon)

Preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river

It’s not what I had planned
When I was walking in
I didn’t know what I’d see
Was stepping through the door
The clothes were on the floor
It was something like a bad dream
And in just a blink
Before I could think
I didn’t know what happened
All I know is this
How could he commit a crime against our passion?

Oh, oh
The moment that I saw them kiss
Oh, oh
I knew it had to end like this

Preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
I couldn’t help myself
When I saw him with her, with her
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
The river, river
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
River, river

The writing’s on the wall
But it was his fault
How could anybody blame me?
I swear to tell the truth
And if you only knew
I swear you’d do the same thing

Ooh, oh
If you give me one more chance
Oh, oh
I’ll never shoot him down again

So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
I couldn’t help myself
When I saw him with her, with her
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river

Oh, oh-oh
Take me down
Oh, oh-oh
Take me down
Oh, oh-oh
Take me down
River, river
Oh, oh-oh
Take me down

Preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
I couldn’t help myself
When I saw him with her, with her
I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
River, river
Oh, oh, oh, oh
Oh, oh, oh, oh
River, river

I took that loaded gun
Forgive what I have done
So preacher, take me down
Take me down to the river, river
