Deep River Blues

print

   Let it rain let it pour
   Let it rain a whole lot more
   ‘Cause I got them deep river blues
   Let the rain drive right on
   let the waves sweep along
   ‘Cause I got them deep river blues.

My old gal’s a good old pal
And she looks like a water fowl
when I get them deep river blues
Ain’t no one to cry for me
And the fish all go out on a spree when
I get them deep river blues.

Give me back my old boat
I’m gonna sail if she’ll float
cause I got them deep river blues
I’m goin’ back to Mussel Shoals
Times are better there I’m told
cause I got them deep river blues.

If my boat sinks with me
I’ll go down don’t you see
cause I got them deep river blues
Now I’m gonna say good-bye
‘N if I sink just let me die
cause I got them deep river blues.
