deep river blues lyrics – doc & merle watson

let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more
’cause i got them deep river blues
let that old river rise and fall and let the big waves make a wall
’cause i got them deep river blues, alright son

my old gal’s a good little pal, she walks just like a waterfall
when i get them deep river blues
ain’t no one to cry for me, 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
yes, i got them deep river blues
i’m goin’ back to muscle shoals, time’s getting better there i’m told
’cause i got them deep river blues

well, if my boat sinks with me, i’m gonna go down, don’t you see
yes, i got them deep river blues
and now i’m gonna say goodbye, if i sink then just let me die
’cause i got them deep river blues, get them all

let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more
’cause i got them deep river blues
and let that old river rise and fall, let them big waves make a wall
’cause i got them deep river blues
