Deep River Blues

Lyrics: Doc Watson
Music: Doc Watson

Played by Weir, Robinson and Greene in 2012.

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 Muscle Shoals
Times are better there I'm told
Cause I got them deep river blues

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

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 goodbye
And if I sink, just let me die
'Cause I got them deep river blues

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
