GONNA TAKE A LOT OF RIVER

I AIN'T GONNA RIDE NO RAIL
OR HITCHHIKE DOWN NO HIWAY
I AIN'T GOING NOWHERE
FEELING THE WAY I DO
BECAUSE MY BABY'S LONG GONE
AND NOTHING'S GOING MY WAY
I'M GONNA LET THIS MIGHTY WATER
JUST WASH AWAY MY BLUES.

IT'S GONNA TAKE A LOT OF RIVER
TO KEEP THIS BROKEN HEART AFLOAT
GONNA TAKE A LOT OF RIVER
RUNNING ALL THE LIVE LONG DAY
GONNA TAKE THE MISSISSIPPI
THE MONONGAHELA AND THE OHIO
GONNA TAKE A LOT OF RIVER
T O WASH THESE BLUES AWAY .

WELL I WISH I WAS A TUG BOAT
PUSHING AND A PULLING THEM BARGES ALONG
LIVING ON THE WATER
WITH A HEART MADE OF IRON AND STEEL
THERE WOULDN'T BE NO WOMAN
WHO COULD EVER TAKE MY LOVING AND DO ME WRONG
I COULD WORK ALL DAY
WITH NOTHING IN THE WORLD TO FEEL.

CHORUS

IS SHE IN NEW ORLEANS,
IS SHE A CAJUN QUEEN
I WONDER WHAT SHE'S DOING NOW
BUT IF I KNOW HER
SHE'S GOT RINGS AND FURS
STRUGGELING ALONG SOMEHOW

GONNA TAKE A LOT OF RIVER
TO WASH THESE BLUES AWAY.
