The river ran through Howard County
It was the life blood of the land
It make fields of green tobacco
Aching backs and callused hands
Mama talked of a coming battle
That the women folk had to fight
'Cause the good lord owned the daytime
But the devil seemed to own the night

Well, it came up out of nowhere
From a dark and bitter seed
It was the roughest kind of roadhouse
And a most unwanted weed
It drew the men folk like a magnet
The women knew what they had to do
