Do you remember when you first heard Otis Redding?
When a certain something melody could blow your mind
I used to hide upstairs with my mama's records
Dropped the needle on a track about a hundred damn times

Let's take it on back to the river
With that muddy water beat
Let's take it on back to that old soul
Let it all wash all over me
Let's turn back time for a minute
Maybe we can just pretend that we're right back there again
Yeah, put on that track
Let's take it on back
Oh, let's take it on back

I grew up on the state line of Georgia and Carolina
I loved the sound of that gospel southern rock
Yeah I still I hear that soul train whistle blowin'
And wishing that groove would never stop

Let's take it on back to the river
With that muddy water beat
Let's take it on back to that old soul
Let it all wash all over me
Let's turn back time for a minute
Maybe we can just pretend that we're right back there again
Yeah, put on that track

Let's take it on back and put that vinyl on
There ain't nothing wrong
Oh come on, sing along
I wanna feel a little something real

Let's take it on back to the river
With that muddy water beat
Let's take it on back to that old soul
Let it all wash all over me
Let's turn back time for a minute
Maybe we can just pretend that we're right back there again
Yeah, put on that track
Let's take it on back
Let's take it on back

Oh baby
That muddy water beat washing all over me
Take it on back
