Water Bound

print

The Chickens are crowing in the old pine tree
The Chickens are crowing in the old pine tree
The Chickens are crowing in the old pine tree
Way down in North Carolina

   Water bound and I can’t get home
   Water bound and I can’t get home
   Water bound and I can’t get home
   Down in North Carolina.

Say old man I want your daughter
Say old man I want your daughter
Say old man I want your daughter
Way down in North Carolina.

Tell me boy what you want her for
Tell me boy what you want her for
Tell me boy what you want her for
Down in North Carolina.

To break my bread and share my water
To break my bread and share my water
To break my bread and share my water
Way down in North Carolina.

If you don’t let her go we’re gonna run away
If you don’t let her go we’re gonna run away
If you don’t let her go we’re gonna run away
On back to North Carolina.

The old man’s mad and I don’t care
The old man’s mad and I don’t care
The old man’s mad and I don’t care
As long as I gets his daughter

Get up Jennie and let’s go home
Get up Jennie and let’s go home
Get up Jennie and let’s go home
Before the water rises.
