I.O.I.O.

 I.O. I.O.
 
 You know I love getting up in the morning
 When the sun first strikes the trees
 All the morning birds that sing above
 Still bring back memories
 
 Of a girl who stood beside me
 When the rights I did were wrong
 But she went back down the river
 Just when I thought I could be strong
 When I thought I could be strong, so I sing
 
 I.O.I.O.
 
 She never told me why she left me
 But the letter say goodbye
 Now my mornings are for wond'ring
 And my nights to reason why
 Why a stranger comes to steal the love
 
 Of a girl I had to hold
 But she went back down the river
 Just when I thought I could be strong
 When I thought I could be strong, so I sing
 
 I.O. I.O.
