Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
Well, I never will forget that ol' floatin' bridge
Tell me, five minutes underwater when I was hid

When I was goin' down I throwed up my hands
Yeah, when I was goin' down I throwed up my hands
Now, when I was goin' down I throwed up my hands
Lord, please, please take me on dry land

Now, they carried me out the water an' they laid me on the bank
Now, they carried me out the water an' they laid me on the bank
They carried me out the water, they laid me on the bank
About a gallon of muddy water I had drank

Now, they dried me off an' they laid me on the bed
Now, they dried me off an' they laid me on the bed
Now, they dried me off, they laid me on the bed
Don't like muddy water runnin' through my head

Now, my mother often taught me, don't you be no bum
But my mother often taught me, don't you be no bum
But my mother often taught me, son, don't you be no bum
Go somewhere, settle down, find you someone

Now, the people standin' on the bridge was screamin' an' cryin'
Well, the people on the bridge was screamin' an' cryin'
Now, the people on the bridge was standin' screamin' an' cryin'
Lord, I thought sure 'nuff that I was dyin'

Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
Well, I never will forget that floatin' bridge
I never will forget that ol' floatin' bridge
Tell me, five minutes underwater when I was hid
They tell me, five minutes underwater when I was hid
