Down on the river it's an easy kind of life everybody here's feeling fine
No need to worry or get in a hurry nothing to spend but time
Light up a smoke and tell a few jokes and pass the old jug around
We're gonna get right on a Saturday night when the sun goes down
Down on the river down on the river
Just some old boys a making a lot of noise
Down on the river down on the river down on the river
If anyone calls tell them we're all down on the river

Well we'll go fishing by the light of the moon and bait them hooks by hand
Early in the morning take them off the line fry 'em all up in a pan
We gotta get home while we still got a job or we'll have to answer to the man
And everybody knows we gotta go we'll be back again
Down on the river...
[ guitar ]
Down on the river...
