New River Train lyrics

I'm riding on that new river train
Riding on that new river train
Same old train that brought me here
Gonna take me away again

Darling, you can't love one
Darling, you can't love one
You can't love one and have any fun
Darling, you can't love one

* Refrain

Darling, you can't love two
Darling, you can't love two
You can't love two and still be true
Darling, you can't love two

* Refrain

Darling, you can't love three
Darling, you can't love three
You can't love three and still love me
Darling, you can't love three

* Refrain

Darling, you can't love four
Darling, you can't love four
You can't love four and love any more
Darling, you can't love four

* Refrain

Darling, you can't love five
Darling, you can't love five
You can't love five and get money from my hive
Darling, you can't love five

* Refrain

Darling, you can't love six
Darling, you can't love six
You can't love six, for that kind of love don't mix
Darling, you can't love six

* Refrain
