"Deep River Blues" as written by and John William Oates....
Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more
'Cause I've got them deep river blues
Let the rain drive right on, let the waves sweep along
'Cause I've got them deep river blues

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

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

Give me back my old boat, you know I'm gonna sail if she'll float
'Cause I've got them deep river blues
I'm goin' back to Muscle Shoals, times are better there I'm told
'Cause I've got them deep river blues

Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more
'Cause I've got them deep river blues
Let the rain drive right on, let the waves sweep slong
'Cause I've got them deep river blues

(Yodel, yodel)
I've got them deep river blues, I've got them deep river blues
