Lyrics:

Muddy river, pale moonlight…

I’m up on the bank with my hand on her side.

She says, “Baby, can you feel the heat?”

And I say words that I can’t repeat.

 

Roll on…muddy river roll on.

Roll on…muddy river roll on.

 

Riverboat passes slow but sure.

She turns to me; says there ain’t no cure.

“We gonna want this till the day we die,

But we both know we gotta say goodbye.”

 

Roll on…Muddy river roll on.

Roll on…Muddy river roll on.

 

Tell me, how do I burn this fire?

How does my heart let go?

And how do I live when she owns my mind,

My body, my soul?

 

Roll muddy river, roll on.

Take her memory with you.

Take it down to the Gulf of Mexico.

 

Roll muddy river, roll on.

Take her memory with you.

And flow through me and take her from my soul.

 

The sun is rising; she’s already gone.

Up by the levee, she singing a song.

She turns to me and waves goodbye.

And I’m damn sure there’s a tear in her eye.

 

Roll on…muddy river, roll on.

Roll on…muddy river, roll on.

 

Tell me, how do I burn this fire?

How does my heart let go?

And how do I live when she owns my mind,

My body, my soul?

 

Roll muddy river, roll on.

Take her memory with you.

Take it down to the Gulf of Mexico.

 

Roll muddy river, roll on.

Take her memory with you.

And flow through me and take her from my soul.

 

(I say,) roll…muddy river roll on.

(I say,) roll…muddy river roll on.
