Boat Up The River

Boat's up the river and it won't come down,
Then I believe to my soul, Lord, that I'm waterbound.

I'm waterbound I'm waterbound
I believe to my soul, Lord, that I'm waterbound

If the river was whiskey and I was a duck,
I would dive down to the bottom and I would never come up.

I would never come up, I would never come up
I would dive down to the bottom, I would never come up.

I'm going down to the river, take my rocking chair,
If the blues overtakes me, rock away from there.

Rock away from there, away from there
If the blues overtakes me, rock away from there

I'll go down to the river, and sit right down,
If those blues don't leave me 'lone, jump in the river and drown.

River and drown, river and drown
If these blues don't leave, jump the river and drown

Boat's up the river and it won't come down,
Then I believe to my soul, Lord, that I'm waterbound.

I'm waterbound I'm waterbound
I believe to my soul, Lord, that I'm waterbound
