Riders In The Sky – King Of The River lyrics

I'm Mike Fink
King of the river

Listen to the thunder
Hear the winds roar
Hurricane's a-coming
Board up the door

Load up the cannon
Call up the law
Worstest calamity
That folks never saw

Girls run and hide
Brave men shiver
I'm Mike Fink
King of the river

Oh, he's a ring-tail roarer
And a tough old alligator
Oh, he's a bull-nosed bully
And a real depopulator

Oh, what a deep divin catfish
That always come up dry
He's gonna live forever
Born too mean to die

Dug the whole Ohio
With my big toe
Filled her up with water
Made the critter flow

Stomped out the valley
Scraped up the ridge
Wade across the river
'Cause I don't trust no bridge

And then an earthquake
Make mountains quiver
I'm Mike Fink
King of the river

Oh he can uptalk a lawyer
Oh, he can upchop thunder
And her son say that he can

Oh, what a fightin' devil
He'll spit right in your eye
He's gonna live forever
Born too mean to die
(Born too mean to die)
