"Oh Joe Hannah" as written by and John Stewart....
[Chorus: x 2]

Oh Joe Hannah, don't you work so long.
Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? (Last time - Oh Joe Hannah!)
Thirteen years I've been workin' on the river. Thirteen years since you've been gone.
Thirteen years and you'd better go home. Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? Oh!

[Chorus]

Thirteen years I've been workin' on the river. Thirteen years that ain't so long.
Thirteen years and you'd better go home. Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? Oh!

[Chorus]
Thirteen years I've been workin' on the river. Thirteen years I've been alone.
Thirteen years and you'd better go home. Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? Oh!

[Chorus]
