Black Water by Doobie Brothers


[Buy " Best of the Doobies " CD]


Black Water
Well, I built me a raft and she's ready for floatin';
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 ev'rything, pretty mama,
gonna make ev'rything 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' up town.
Yeah, I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland
and dance a honky tonk,
and I'll be buyin' ev'rybody 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?
Yeah, keep on shinin' your light,
gonna make ev'rything, pretty mama,
gonna make ev'rything 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.
I want to honkey-tonk, honkey-tonk, honkey-tonk,
with you all night long.

I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland,
pretty mama, come and take me by the hand, by the hand. (C'mon, baby, c'mon, ba - be.)
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.
I want to honkey-tonk, honkey-tonk, honkey-tonk,
with you all night long.

I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland,
pretty mama, come and take me by the hand, by the hand.
(Can you feel it?, can you feel it?.)
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.
I want to honkey-tonk, honkey-tonk, honkey-tonk,
with you all night long
