Down by the river, the Mississippi drive
there lives a boy who rides boats that pass at night
and he hears the sounds of engines, sounds that pass him by down by the riverside, steamboats passing by...
whoa oh down by the riverside
Now across the sea of dreams their lives a girl who see’s, a boy that is lonely, cryin’ out for you and me... and she sits by the waters, sayin’ steamboat come to me
oh steamboat come to me
whoa oh down by the riverside
now the boy see’s the girls sittin’ on the other side
and he waits for the chance, a chance to catch a ride down to where his dreams lye,
Down by the Riverside
