River Boy Recorded by Waylon Jennings Written by Fred F. Carter Jr.
C F I was born and raised on the river G7 C It's the only life that I know F People 'round here have put a name on me G7 C And I hear it wherever I go
F They call me river boy river boy G7 C Good for nothin' river boy F This old world don't hold a whole lot of joy G7 C For a good for nothin' river boy
F I do a lot of fishin' on the river G7 C To make my livin' you see F When I take my catch to the market place G7 C The people call out to me
F And they say river boy hey river boy G7 C You got any fish today there river boy F I sell my wares but nobody cares G7 C About the feelin's of the river boy
F There's a pretty girl works at the market place G7 C I see her there everyday F But every time I try to talk to her G7 C I can hear her papa say
F Come away from that river boy river boy G7 C Nothin' but riff-raff them river boys F No girl of mine is gonna waste her time G7 C On a good for nothin' river boy
F So I head my boat back up the river G7 C Back to the old fishin' place F I'm afraid this ol' river's gonna overflow G7 C From the tears a-fallin' down my face
F I'm just a river boy river boy G7 C A good for nothin' river boy F This old world don't hold a whole lot of joy G7 C For a good for nothin' but a river boy
G7 C Good for nothin' but a river boy G7 C Good for nothin' but a river boy
