Here's the version I remember from the late 40's.

From "The Spirit of Hank Williams".

LOST ON THE RIVER - Words and music by Hank Williams, Sr.

Recorded by Hank Williams, Sr. (W/Audrey Williams)

[D] Lost On The River - [G] dark is the [D] night

Just like the blind - praying for [A7] sight

[D] Drifting alone - [G] heart filled with [D] strife

I'm Lost On The River, the [A7] river of [D] life.

Once dear, I thought - I knew the way/ That's was before - old sad yesterday

Words that you said - cut like a knife/ I'm Lost On The River, the river of life.

Out on this river - where sorrow creeps/ Thinking of you - how my heart weeps/

Tomorrow you'll be - another man's wife/ I'm Lost On The River, the river of life.
