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<br />
<br />
Chorus:<br />
<br />
Home to the snapper, home to the crawdaddy Home to the catfish, too.<br />
Home to my women, home to my whiskey,<br />
Home to the sky so blue.<br />
Yeah, its down this lazy river, I gotta roam.<br />
In this big ol flat boat I call home.<br />
<br />
Trawlin flathead with a rope, Lord<br />
Big ol riverboat glidin past.<br />
Lily-white beauty with a paddle-wheel<br />
Make New Orleans blink two time fast.<br />
Then I pull up on another landing<br />
Mess of fish get me some gold.<br />
That money be gone before the mornin come round Got to live before Im old.<br />
