My old gal's a good old pal, she looks like a water fowl, When I get them deep river blues, Ain't no one to cry for me and the fish all go out on a spree , When I get them deep river blues.

3.

Give me back my old boat, I'm gonna sail if she'll float, 'cause I got them deep river blues, I'm goin' back to Mussel Shoals, times are better there I'm told, 'cause I got them deep river blues.

4.

If my boat sinks with me, I'll go down don't you see, 'cause I got them deep river blues, Now I'm gonna say good-bye, 'n' if I sink just let me die, 'cause I got them deep river blues.
