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 works gotten slow
So where's a boatman 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
Then we ever could before

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

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