Deep River Blues
Written by The Delmore Brothers



Chords


Song

1.

Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more,
'cause I got them deep river blues,
Let the rain drive right on, let the waves sweep along,
'cause I got them deep river blues.

2.

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.

repeat verse 1.
