Roll muddy river roll on muddy river roll on
I've got a notion you'll go to the ocean alone
I've got a baby in Tennessee who's long been a waitin' for little ole me
So roll muddy river roll on muddy river roll on
New Orleans on to ole St Louis stopped in Memphis Minneapolis too
Back in Nashville I'll be through so roll muddy river roll on
Roll muddy river roll on...
[ guitar - steel ]
I love you but just call it fate you and I are gonna separate
You'll be here but he won't wait so roll muddy river roll on
Roll muddy river roll on...
Roll muddy river roll on muddy river roll on
