Cool River Sally was just seventeen years old
When she left the town of Mason with all that she could hold
She had a backpack, a guitar, and some clothes
Headed for Gulf waters, where the cool water flows

Sally met Joseph carrying a fishin' pole
He asked Sally for her name, together they walked down the road
Turns out Joe could catch 'em while Sally lit the fire
They'd reach the cool, cool river and then they would retire

Listen to the sound of the cool, cool river
Cool River Sally, she never went to school
When you see the glimmer of the cool, cool, river
Cool River Sally is a cool river jewel

Twenty days passed and they traveled due South
When the road got muddy, Sally smiled and said, "At last!"
They put their whole life savings down on the line
And when the night was over they'd had themselves a time

Sally played sweet guitar; her voice sang cool river songs
Joe listened in, rubbed his chin, and said, "I'll be back by dawn."
He returned the next day with a man in a three-piece suit, who said,
"I'm gonna make you a star girl. We'll all make a bundle of loot!"

Listen to the sound of the cool, cool river
Cool River Sally, she never went to school
When you see the glimmer of the cool, cool, river
Cool River Sally is a cool river jewel

Sally wasn't leaving. She'd felt the cool river water
So the record guy thought he should sweeten up the offer
But no amount of money would do
No big 'ole house in Nashville, not for Sally Cool

Joe stuck around because he loved his Cool River Sally
Each day he'd walk into town whistling her tunes
They got married down by the water, with the waves as a witness
A lifetime honeymoon

Listen to the sound of the cool, cool river
Cool River Sally, she never went to school
When you see the glimmer of the cool, cool, river
Cool River Sally is a cool river jewel
