I'm goin' down that river
I'm goin-a take that right hand road
I'm goin' down the river
I'm goin-a take that right hand road
Lord, I ain't gon' stop walkin'
'Till I get in sweet mama's arms

Lord, the girl I'm lovin'
She got that great long curly hair
Lord, the girl I'm lovin'
Got the great long curly hair
Lord, her mama an her papa, Lord
Sure don't allow me there

Lord, allow me
Sure don't allow me
Sure don't allow me
Sure don't allow me
Sure don't allow
Allow me there
Lord, Lord
Sho' don't allow
'llow me there

(guitar & comb)

Sun rose this mornin', baby
Lord, I was layin' down on my flo'
Lord, the sun rose this mornin'
I was layin' down on my flo'
Lord, no woman to love me
Baby, even no place to go

Lord, nobody
Love me, baby
Lord, no place
Place to go
Lord
Even no, place to go
Lordy, Lordy, Lord, Lord

(guitar)

Lord, I'm goin' away, baby
Don't you wanna go?
I'm goin' away, baby
Mama, don't you wanna go?
Lord, I'm goin' somewhere
I ain't never been before

Oh, Lord, I
Lord, I'm goin'
Goin' somewhere
I ain't never
Been befo'
Lord, Lord.
