From the recording Caught in the Act Live from the Voodoo Cave
Had some good time whiskey last night Lord
in this sleepy old ferry town
I woke up with a woman that I never even knowed
Guess you can't keep a good man down
So I took her on down to the river child
Just to hear that water roll by
Then she showed me the stars in that muddy Mississippi
She kissed me twice said don't ask why
Home to the snapper, home to the crawdaddy
Home to the catfish, too.
Home to my women, home to my whiskey,
Home to the sky so blue.
Yeah, it’s down this lazy river, I gotta roam.
In this big ol’ flat boat I call home.
Trawlin’ flathead with a rope, Lord
Big ol’ riverboat glidin’ past.
Lily-white beauty with a paddle-wheel
Make New Orleans blink two time fast.
Then I pull up on another landing
Mess of fish get me some gold.
That money be gone before the mornin’ come ‘round
Got to live before I’m old.
REPEAT FIRST VERSE
