This Ol' Riverboat This ol' riverboat walkin up the river Keep her steady as you go Heave the lead and pay the line Now we're markin' on the twine Four fathoms below Way up the river we go. This ol' riverboat walkin' by the levee Keep her steady as you go Think I hear the captain say, Full ahead we're on our way Three fathoms below Way up the river we go. Keep on a-movin' gotta beat ol' Dixie Or we'll come back empty I know Way down the river I can hear her whistle blow. This ol' riverboat churnin' muddy water Ease er' down and take it slow Can't you hear that rumblin' sound Lord, I think we've run aground No fathoms below You'd better pray it isn't so. BF oct99
