lyrics

WASHING IN THE RIVER

The mud waned banks seemed to wander by
While pushed along on rushes ride
And he sang
He sang of his woe

The weather comes fair and the weather comes foe
Say he's powerful fond of the too and fro
And he sang
He sang of his woe

Say'n no mount'a washin' in the river gonna cleanse this soul

It take more nerve than can stand a man
To read aloud when he's dealt his hand
So he sang
He sang of his woe

Singing don't play hooky with a pole cat swinging
On a midnight barge coz you'll end up swimming
For broke
And he sang
He sang of his woe

Its a sad thing thinking on a boat whats sinking
What a wretch he made of the things god give him
With nothing to show
He sang
He sang of his woe
Say'n no mount-a washin' in the river gonna cleanse this soul
Wanna mend all my ills for i get too old

The mud waned banks seems to heave and sigh
As he passed and loosed his cry
He sang
He sang of his woe
Say'n no mount'a washin' in the river gonna cleanse… this… soul…

No washing in the river won't save this soul
Wanna mend my ill's for i get too old
And I'll Be bathing long
No washing in the river won't save this soul

Washing in the river won't cleanse my soul
Mend my ills for i get too old
If my sins run out, no the banks won't hold
So i tried my luck on a white-wash post
Drove the nails home with the savior ghost
No washing in the river won't save this soul

Washing in the river won't cleanse this soul
Gotta mend my ill's for i get too old
Its a sad thing thinking on a boat whats sinking
What a wretch he made of the things god give him
No washing in the river won't save my soul

No mount'a washing in the river gona' cleanse this….
