Lefty Frizzell – James River lyrics

James River is long and it's narrow it's rocky and wide and deep
The women are dark eyed beauties and the men don't ever sleep
A dark eyed bundle of a woman stands waving on the bank I see
The dangers are plenty but the pleasures are many
I know James River man will ever stop me
So when the sun goes down and I sneak around trouble is everywhere
My boat head the bank so they can see no James River man will ever stop me
[ banjo ]
The holes in my boat are many hot licks flyin' again
The James River boys're jealous they all hate the mountain man
There's a sweet bundle...
I know James River man will ever stop me I know James River man will ever stop me
I know James River man will ever stop me
