Ol' Man River (Show Boat)
J. Kern

Lyrics

Dere's an ol' man called de Mississippi,
dat's de ol' man dat I'd like to be;
what does he care if de world's got troubles?
What does he care if de land ain't free?
Ol' man River,
dat ol' man River,
he mus' know sumpin',
but don't say nothin',
he just keeps rollin',
he keeps on rollin' along.
He don't plant 'taters,
he don't plant cotton,
an' dem dat plant 'em is soon forgotten,
but ol' man River,
he jes' keeps rollin' along.
You an' me we sweat an' strain,
body all achin' an' racked wid pain.
"Tote dat barge!"
"Lift dat bale!"
Git a little drunk an' you lands in jail.
Ah gits weary
an' sick of tryin',
Ah'm tired of livin'
an' scared of dyin',
but ol' man River,
he jes' keeps rollin' along.
