Eric Andersen – Blue River lyrics
Dm F G Bb
Old man go to the river
C A7 Dm F7
To drop his bale of woes
Bb G F Dm
He could go if he wanted to
Bb G7 F Dm G7
It's just a boat to row you know listen to me now
F Bb F C
Blue River keep right on rollin
A7 Dm F7
All along the shore line
Bb C7 F C Dm
Keep us safe from the deep and the dark
Bb F Bb F
Cause we don't want to stray too far
Dm F G Bb
Spent the day with my old dog Mo
C A7 Dm F7
Down an old dirt road
Bb G F Dm
What he's thinking lord I don't know
Bb G F Dm
But for him bet the time must go so slow
G
Don't you know
F Bb F C
Blue River keep right on rollin
A7 Dm F7
All along the shore line
Bb C7 F C Dm
Keep us safe from the deep and the dark
Bb F Bb F
Cause we don't want to stray too far

Harmonica break


Dm F G Bb
Young Rob stands with his ax in his hand
C A7 Dm F7
Believin that the crops are in
Bb G F Dm
Fire wood stacked ten by ten
Bb G
For the wife the folks the kids
F Dm G7
All of the kin and a friend listen to me now
F Bb F C
Blue River keep right on rollin
A7 Dm F7
All along the shore line
Bb C7 F C Dm
Keep us safe from the deep and the dark
Bb F Bb F
Cause we don't want to stray too far
