The Box Tops - Soul Deep (1969)

The origins of this group can be traced back to Memphis, Tennessee in 1963 where they were originally known as The Devilles. To prevent confusion with another band of the same name, they switched to their current and well-known name. They reached international stardom with their 1967 number one hit, “The Letter,” (to hear Bob Marley & The Wailers’ version, click here) and continued to release songs of varying success throughout the ‘60s.

Released in June of 1969, this was the last single released by the group that was considered a good success. It was also their last song to get into the Top 40, reaching number three, and came out roughly six and a half months before the group disbanded.

Lyrics:

Darling, I don't know much
I know I love you so much
My life depends on your touch

And my love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Way down inside me it’s a’soul deep
It's too big to hide and it can't be denied
Love is a river runnin’ soul deep

I work myself to death for ya
Just to show I adore ya
Nothin’ I wouldn't do for ya

‘cause my love is a river running soul deep
Way down inside me it’s soul deep
It's too big to hide and it can't be denied
Love is a river runnin’ soul deep

All I ever, ever hope to be
Depends on your love for me
Baby, believe me, if you should leave me
I'd be nothin’ but an empty shell
I know darn well, I can tell now

I don't know much
I know I love you so much
My life depends on your touch

And my love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Way down inside me it’s a’soul deep
It's too big to hide and it can't be denied
Love is a river runnin’ soul deep

My love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Way down inside me it’s a’soul deep

My love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Way down inside me it’s a’soul deep

Well my love is a river runnin’ soul deep
Way down inside me it’s a’soul deep…
