lyrics

Build me a raft, take this old oar
Gonna smile at the people waving’ on the shore
I’m going’ down to the river, won’t you take my hand
You could be my lady, I’ll be your man
I’m going’ down to the river
Won’t you come down with me?

Down to the river, down to the river
Down to the river, down to the river

Well, I said, “Baby - well now, this day is too hot
Trust me now, I think you’ll like this a lot
I say, honey, don’t look at me like a fool
Just take my hand, you know the water’s so cool
You gotta dive right in, and do it again
Standing’ out here, Lord knows, you just can’t win
I’m going’ down to the river
Won’t you come down with me?”

Down to the river, down to the river
Down to the river, down to the river

I heard a place down on past the falls
There’s a weeping willow, ain’t weeping at all
Well I said, “Come on honey - what do you say?
And now we’ll even do some fishin’, Lord, out on the way
I’m going’ down to the river, won’t you take my hand?
You can be my lady, I’ll be your man
I’m goin’ down to the river
Won’t you come down with me?”

Down to the river, down to the river
Down to the river, down to the river
