Written by Roy Orbison and Bill Dees

Roly-oly on now river roly-oly on your way
C F D7 G7 C
Roly-oly on now river wash my cares away

G7 C
River so wide and so deep

Wake the sandman from his sleep
F G7 C
River remind him he has a promise to keep

Em F Em F
Roll on mighty river running wild and free
Em F D7 G7
Get along now river bring a dream to me
Hey now river go down river
C F D7 G7 C
Don't slow down river bring a dream to me

Roly-oly on now river roly-oly on your way
C F D7 G7 C
Roly-oly on now river take my troubles away

G7 C
Robin Hood river roll on

Go steal a dream from the dawn
F G7 C
River you'll find me where all the dreamers have gone
