The River Driver

The River Driver published on

I was just the age of sixteen when I first went on the drive,
After six months hard labor, at home I did arrive.
I courted with a pretty girl, t’was her caused me to roam,
Now I’m a river driver and I’m far away from home.

I’ll eat when I am hungry and I’ll drink when I am dry,
Get drunk whenever I’m ready, get sober by and by,
And if this river don’t drown me, it’s down I’ll mean to roam,
For I’m a river driver and I’m far away from home.

I’ll build a lonesome castle upon some mountain high,
Where she can sit and view me as I go passing by
Where she can sit and view me as I go marching on,
For I’m a river driver and I’m far away from home.

When I am old and feeble and in my sickness lie,
Just wrap me up in a blanket and lay me down to die
Just get a little bluebird to sing for me alone,
For I’m a river driver and I’m far away from home.
