Various Artists – Black Water lyrics

Well, I built me a raft and she's ready for float
Ol' Mississippi, she's callin' my name
Catfish are jumpin', that paddle wheel thumpin'
Black water keeps rollin' on past just the same

Old black water keep on rollin'
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me?
Old black water keep on rollin'
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me?
Old black water keep on rollin'
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me?

Yeah, keep on shinin' your light
Gonna make everything, pretty mama
Gonna make everything alright
And I ain't got no worries 'cause I ain't in no hurry at all

Well if it rains, I don't care, don't make no difference to me
Just take that street car that's goin' uptown
Yeah, I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland
And dance a honky tonk and I'll be buyin' everybody drinks all 'roun'

Old black water keep on rollin'
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me?
Old black water keep on rollin'
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me?
Old black water keep on rollin'
Mississippi moon, won't you keep on shinin' on me?

Keep on shinin' your light
Gonna make everything, everything
Gonna make everything alright
And I ain't got no worries 'cause I ain't in no hurry at all

I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland
Pretty mama, come and take me by the hand
By the hand, take me by the hand
Pretty mama come and dance with your daddy all night long

I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland
Pretty mama, come and take me by the hand
By the hand, take me by the hand
Pretty mama come and dance with your daddy all night long

I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland
Pretty mama, come and take me by the hand
By the hand, take me by the hand
Pretty mama come and dance with your daddy all night long
