Gonna take a lot of river (video)
F - G - G7 - C
1. I ain’t gonna ride no rail or hitchhike down no highway,
I ain’t going nowhere feeling the way I do.
Because my baby’s long gone and nothings going my way,
I’m gonna let this muddy water just a-wash away my blues.
It’s gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart a-float,
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 to wash these blues away.
2. Well, I wish I was a tugboat a-pushing
and a-pulling them barges along
moving on the water with a heart made of iron and steel.
There wouldn’t be no woman that could ever take
my love and then do me wrong,
I could work all day with nothing in the world to feel.
+ 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,
A# F - G - F - G
struggling along someho.....w.
+ CHORUS (2x)
+ It’s gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away !
+ F - G - G7 - C
