Well I know that I shouldn't have done it. I know it just wasn't right. Cause they got me back up to the cotton mouth river and I can't cross late at night.

Chorus... I hear there's lots of stories told about the cotton mouth river, they tell them time and again, about the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight and never were heard from again…

If I had all my live to live over, I'd have gone to work that day. Instead of going into town and shooting him down for a thing I never heard him say.

I hear there's lots of stories told about the cotton mouth river, they tell them time and again, about the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight and never was heard from again…

Well I just made it through the cane break and I got one foot
In the mud. I can hear the hounds obeying but the snake
Around my ankles telling me my running days are
Done.

I hear there's lots of stories told about the cotton mouth river, they tell them time and again, about the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight and never were heard from again…

I hear there's lots of stories told about the cotton mouth river, they tell them time and again, about the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight and never were heard from again…
