(1955)





Way down on the levee in old Alabamy

There's daddy and mammy, there's Efran and Sammy

On a moonlight night you can find them all

While they are waiting the banjos are syncopating

What's that they're saying, what's that they're saying

Well while they keep playing I'm humming and swaying

It's the good ship Robert E. Lee that's come to carry the cotton away



Watch them shuffle along

See them shuffle along

Oh take your best gal real pal go down to the levee

I said the levee

Join the shuffling throng

Hear the music and song

It's simply great mate waiting on the levee

Waiting for the Robert E. Lee



Whistles are blowing smokestacks are showing

The ropes they are throwing, excuse me I'm going

To the place where all is harmonious

Even the preacher they say is the dancing teacher

Have you been down there say were you around there

If you ever go there you'll always be found there

Why doggone here comes my baby on the good ship Robert E. Lee



Watch them shuffle along

See them shuffle along

Oh take your best gal your real pal go down to the levee

I said the levee

Join the shuffling throng

Hear the music and song

It's simply great mate waiting on the levee

Waiting for the Robert E. Lee
