Old Crow Medicine Show – James River Blues Lyrics

James River blues
I just heard the awful news
I could steer around the rocks
But they’re bustin’ down the docks

James River blues
That train came on through
And the work’s gotten slow
Now wheres a boat man to go

I think I’ll float on down
To Richmond town
They don’t need us anymore
Haulin’ freight from shore to shore
That big iron hauls much more
Than we ever could before

I’ve see good men going wrong
I’ve seen bad ones get it right
As that river rolls along
I’ll be steppin’ out tonight

On the cool flow
Floatin’ down, down below
The bridge to the waters edge
From the ridge to the ledge
From the hills to the sea
I’ll become a memory

James River blues
James River blues
James River blues

[Old Crow Medicine Show – James River Blues Lyrics]
