Well, take me back down where cool water flows, y'all.
Let me remember things I love
Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite,
Walkin' along the river road at night,
Barefoot girl dancin' in the moonlight.
I can hear the bullfrog callin' me, home.
Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree.
Love to kick my feet 'way down the shallow water.
Shoefly, dragonfly, get back to mother.
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River.
Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, Lord,
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, Junior took me over,
Said, "You're gonna find the world is smould'rin'.
And if you get lost come on home to Green River."
Come on home.
