Take me back down where cool water flow-yeh.
Let me remember things I love.
Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite
walkin' along the river road at night
barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight.
I can hear the bull frog callin' me-oh.
Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree.
Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water
shoe fly dragon fly get back t your mother.
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River.
Up at Cody's camp I spent my days-oh,
with flat car riders and cross-tie walkers.
Old Cody, Junior took me over,
said, you're gonna find the world is smould rin
an' if you get lost come on home to Green River
