Broadjam Member Reviews

i really like the simplicity of the vocal and the build to this tune and it's simple story. well done in it's own rustic way.

Lyrics

On The Mississippi


Somewhere that wheel is turning
Wheel turning on a Riverboat
Somewhere that paddle wheel is turning
Sometime on the Mississippi

She was winsome in the standing in the spring
Waiting ashore on her wedding day
Fell in love with a gambling man
Who gave up a chance to play

She will be waiting there in the fall
For love's hand he will never play
He fell flat for a flush in hearts
Shot dead on his wedding day

But time ain't healing a lover's tears
He ain't coming no matter what she prays
Caught in the flow of that ole river
Lover or losers the gambler pays

So if there flies by a caring angel
That lays rest a troubled heart
Pray a good man comes along
And let this river do its part
Pray the river does its part
