NEVER GO DOWN TO THE RIVER (bluegrass song)

NEVER GO DOWN TO THE RIVER
A bluegrass song by “Blind Peanut” Nicholson

The songs of old have nuggets of golden wisdom for you to learn
Just take their advice and your life will be nicer and you may not have to burn
But there is one part that you must take to heart when push has come to shove
Never go down to the river with the one you love

Never go down to the river with the one you love
Dreadful things may happen there under the stars above
He’ll say he wants you for your wife
And then he’ll take your honor and maybe your life
Never go down to the river with the one you love

You boys and young men, I must tell you again, you are not immune
You are likely as well to be sent down to hell by the light of the rivery moon
She may have found you’ve been messing around
And you’ll find she has dug you a hole in the ground
Never go down to the river with the one you love

Never go down to the river with the one you love
Dreadful things may happen there under the stars above
You’ll be much better off just staying in town
With a whole bunch of other people around
Never go down to the river with the one you love
