Many Rivers to Cross - Jimmy Cliff

The unofficial theme song of Sawtooth 2011? It will be for me.

Consider -

"Many rivers to cross
And it's only my will that keeps me alive
I've been licked, washed up for years
And I merely survive because of my pride"

It's been covered many times, but Jimmy Cliff's version is still the best.


  1. And when I tried to do it, all I could think of was Radiohead:
    I don't care if it hurts
    I want to have control
    I want a perfect body
    I want a perfect soul
    I want you to notice
    When I'm not around
    You're so fucking special
    I wish I was special

    But I'm a creep
    I'm a weirdo
    What the hell am I doing here?
    I don't belong here

    She's running out again
    She's running out
    She run, run, run run

  2. I get that, Steve. Creep is definitely in heavy rotation for my life's soundtrack.
