Sweet River

Swing down sweet river put a dollar in the wishing well

I grew up in the prairie land Illinois
Right on the banks of the twin lakes in good old Paris
Spent my time in a corn field on a good old boonie cruise
Smokin’ em down with my good friends we never had nothing there to lose

Swing down sweet river put a dollar in the wishing well

Headed out to New York City I studied some medicine there
After two long years in the Caribbean I really didn’t have much of a care
Headed out of the NYC right down to South Carolina
It wasn’t my bag so I packed up my sacks and headed to Louisville

Swing down sweet river put a dollar in the wishing well

My family was tore apart by the same old story I guess
Got a father won’t even talk to me even though I’ve been doing my best
My mother, God Bless her soul, she says to follow your dreams
Even though I ain’t got a cent in my wallet I’m going to continue to sing

Swing down sweet river put a dollar in the wishing well
