Jumpin' River Blues

Matt Cox

You're sweet like a river

Hot like a desert sun (x2)

You said that you loved me 

Child you're not the only one


Goin' down to the river

Lord, I'm gonna jump right in (x2)

When I get down to the river 

Gonna see if all my troubles can swim


I'm low like the devil

I'm high like an old oak tree (x2)

If you try to get closer 

You'll just get farther from me


Sometimes I wonder

If the good Lord will save my soul (x2)

The sky up above me

Is blacker than a chunk of coal


I love my good gal

You know I love my whiskey rye (x2)

Never treat me low-down

Love me till I'm satisfied
