ol’ man river lyrics – bing crosby

well that ol’ man river
that ol’ man river
he must know somethin’
but he don’t say nothin’
’cause he just keeps rollin’
keeps on rollin’ along

and he don’t plant tators
don’t plant cotton
them that plants ’em
is soon forgotten
but that ol’ man river
just keeps rollin’ along

you and me
we sweat and strain
body is achin’ and it’s wracked with pain
tote that barge
lift that bale get a little drunk
and gonna land in jail

i gets weary
yes i’m sick of tryin’
i’m tired of livin’
and i feared of dyin’
but that ol’ man river
keeps rollin’ along

you and me
we got a sweat and strain
body is achin’ and wracked with pain
tote that barge
lift up that bale, get loaded gun
and land in jail

i gets weary
sick of tryin’
i’m tired of livin’
and i”m feared of dyin’
but that ol’ man river
keeps rollin’ along
