    [Elongated Intro]
    Here we all work 'long the Mississippi
    Here we all work while the white folk play
    Pullin' them boats from the dawn till sunset
    Gettin' no rest till the judgment day

    Don't look up and don't look down
    Ya don't dast make the white boss frown
    Bend your knees and bow your head
    And pull that rope until you're dead

    Let me go 'way from the Mississippi
    Let me go 'way from the white man boss
    Show me that stream called the River Jordan
    That's the old stream that I long to cross
    [End Of Intro]

    Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River
    He must know somepin', but he don't say nothin'

    He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along

    He don't plant taters, and he don't plant cotton
    And them what plants 'em is soon forgotten
    But Ol' Man River, jest keeps rollin' along

    You and me, we sweat and strain
    Bodies all achin' and wracked with pain
    Tote that barge and lift that bale
    Ya get a little drunk and ya lands in ja-ail

    I gets weary and so sick of tryin'
    I'm tired of livin', but I'm feared of dyin'
    And Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' along
