Recorded by Randy Travis
Written by Jamie O’Hara
[C]What good does it do to hold onto
The [F]anger deep in your [C]heart
You’re the only one that it’s hurting
You’re the [G7]one that it’s tearing apart
I’m [C]sorry that he broke your heart girl
But it’s [F]time to let it [C]go
Sometimes love is a river of tears
So [G7]pick up the oars and [C]row
He shattered your expectations
He [F]broke all his promises [C]too
With his little white lies he looked in your eyes
And [G7]made you believe they were true
Aw but [C]this ain’t the final curtain
Girl it’s [F]time to get on with the [C]show
Sometimes love is a river of tears
So [G7]pick up the oars and [C]row
It’s [F]been far too long now
[C]Since I’ve seen your smile
Your [G7]bitterness don’t look good on you
And self-[C]pity just ain’t your style
[F]Sooner or later you know
You’ve got to [C]play the card you’ve drawn
[G7]It’s all up to you you can stay blue
Or you can move [C]on
Ain’t it hard when you discover
Things [F]ain’t what you thought they would [C]be
When all of your best played plans
Hit the [G7]wall of reality
Still [C]all in all it’s a good life
But it [F]sure can be painful I [C]know
Sometimes love is a river of tears
So [G7]pick up the oars and [C]row
Sometimes love is a river of tears
So [G7]pick up the oars and [C]go[/chordpress]

Who is Randy Travis?
– Randy Bruce Traywick (born May 4, 1959), known professionally as Randy Travis, is an American country music and gospel music singer, songwriter, guitarist, and actor.Active from 1978 until being incapacitated by a stroke in 2013, he has recorded 20 studio albums and charted more than 50 singles on the Billboard Hot Country Songs charts, including sixteen that reached the No. 1 position. Considered a pivotal figure in the history of country music, Travis broke through in the mid-1980s with the release of his album Storms of Life, which sold more than four million copies. The album established him as a major force in the neotraditional country movement. Travis followed up his successful debut with a string of platinum and multi-platinum albums. He is known for his distinctive baritone vocals, delivered in a traditional style that has made him a country music star since the 1980s.
By the mid-1990s, Travis saw a decline in his chart success. In 1997, he left Warner Bros. Records for DreamWorks Records and then for Word Records, where he began recording more Christian material. Although the career shift produced only one more number-one country hit “Three Wooden Crosses”, Travis went on to earn several Dove Awards, including Country Album of the Year five times. Since his stroke, which severely limited his singing and speaking ability, he has released archival recordings and made limited public appearances. In addition to his singing career, he pursued an acting career, appearing in numerous films and television series, including The Rainmaker (1997) with Matt Damon, Black Dog (1998) with Patrick Swayze, Texas Rangers (2001) with James Van Der Beek, National Treasure 2 (2007) and seven episodes of the Touched by an Angel television series.
Travis has sold over 25 million records and has won seven Grammy Awards, six CMA Awards, eleven ACM Awards, 10 AMA Awards, eight GMA Dove Awards, and a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame. In 2016, Travis was inducted into the Country Music Hall of Fame.
