Ol' man river
That ol' man river
He don't say nothin'
He don't know nothing
Well he just keeps rollin'
He keeps on rollin' along
He don't plant tators
He don't plant cotton
And them that plant them
Are soon forgotten
Well he just keeps rolling
He keeps on rolling along
You and I
We sweat and strain
Body all achin'
And wracked with pain
Tote that barge
Lift that bale
Get a little drunk
And you land in jail
I get weary
And sick of tryin'
I'm feared of livin'
And I'm scared of dyin'
But ol' man river
He just keeps rollin' along
