Golden River

  • (Jimmy Driftwood)

    Chorus:
    When I swim the Golden River in the morn
    Give some pretty little girl my powder horn
    When I swim the Golden River
    How their little hearts will quiver
    When I swim the Golden River in the morning

    Tell the girls to come and busk me
    Lord I know they're gonna cuss me
    When I swim the Golden River in the morning
    I'm dying with the colic
    And I know the girls will frolic
    When I swim the Golden River in the morning

    Tell the girls to come and smack me
    Lord I know they're gonna sack me
    When I swim the Golden River in the morning
    Give me one more dram of whisky
    So that I'll be warm and frisky
    When I swim the Golden River in the morning

    Tell the girls to come and kiss me
    Lord I know they're gonna miss me
    When I swim the Golden River in the morning
    I believe the Lord will bless me
    If the Devil doesn't catch me
    When I swim the Golden River in the morning

    As sung by The Islanders
