Jim Croce - 'Ol Man River lyrics

Ol' man river, that ol' man river

He must know something, but he don't say nothing

That ol' man river, he just keep rollin' along

He don't plant 'taters

He don't plant cotton

Cause them that plants them is soon forgotten

And ol' man river, he just keeps rollin' along

Cause you and me, 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

But I get weary and sick of tryin'

Cause I'm tired of livin'

That ol' man river, he just keeps rollin' along

You and me, 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

But I get weary and sick of tryin'

Cause I'm tired of livin'

But I'm scared of dyin'

That ol' man river, he just keeps rollin' along
