The ToneWay® Project: helping people play music

New River Train [core]

Ridin' on that new river train
Ridin' on that new river 5 train
1 Same old train that 4 brought me here
And it's 5 soon gonna carry me a 1 way

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

Darling, you can't love two,... (×2)
Can't love two and your little heart be true,...

Darling, you can't love three,... (×2)
Can't love three and still love me,...

Darling, you can't love four,... (×2)
Can't love four and love me anymore,...

Darling, you can't love five,... (×2)
Can't love five and get honey from my hive,...

Darling, you can't love six,... (×2)
Can't love six, that kind of love won't mix,...

Darling, you can't love seven, etc...
[You're going to have to make these up!]
