Subject: Great song, no title

Written By: niemidesign on 11/08/03 at 00:59 a.m.

Does anyone know the song and/or band who sings a song with these lyrics in them (they might not be 100%), the song starts with a great single vocal track, with almost no instrumentation, the beginning lyrics are:

...cause I slept with the (ranchers/farmers) daughter,

I swam across the river (trying to save my life)

unfortunately that's all I can really remember, the type of melody and arrangement it has, is similar the Grand Funk Railroad "Some kind of wonderful".

That sounds close to a song by Uriah Heep entitled "Stealin'".  The songs begins with just vocals and organ I think.  He starts out singing, "Take me across the water, 'cause I need someplace to hide,  I done the rancher's daughter and I sure did hurt his pride.  Well there's a hundred miles of desert lies between his heart and mine.  I don't need no food or water Lord, cause I'm runnin' out of time". (That's close anyway).
