Deep River Blues
Doc Watson Lyrics


Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more
'Cause I got them deep river blues
Let the rain drive right on, let the waves sweep along
'Cause I got them deep river blues

My old gal's a good old pal, and she looks like a water fowl
When I get them deep river blues
Ain't no one to cry for me, and the fish all go out on a spree
When I get them deep river blues

Give me back my old boat, I'm gonna sail if she'll float
'Cause I got them deep river blues
I'm goin' back to Muscle Shoals, times are better there I'm told
'Cause I got them deep river blues

Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more
'Cause I got them deep river blues
Let the rain drive right on, let the waves sweep along
'Cause I got them deep river blues

If my boat sinks with me, I'll go down, don't you see
'Cause I got them deep river blues
Now I'm gonna say goodbye, and if I sink, just let me die
'Cause I got them deep river blues

Let it rain, let it pour, let it rain a whole lot more
'Cause I got them deep river blues
Let the rain drive right on, let the waves sweep along
'Cause I got them deep river blues

Ain't no one to cry for me, and the fish all go out on a spree
When I get them deep river blues


If my boat sinks with me, I'll go down, don't you see
'Cause I got them deep river blues

I was in a children's home when I was younger and Doc would come every Christmas and play for us. I even got to sing with him a couple of times and never realized I was singing with a legend. RIP Doc.

Guitar lovers know the majesty of this man and his lasting impact on his instrument.

Alex Midence

Yes, we do. Among us guitar players, Doc is pure royalty.

Jeremy Reagan

I am a guitarist for 26 years let me tell you Doc is a alien seriously people scoff at country blues or old time music because it sounds simple but, no sir I respect Jazz and such but, I will never get over how beautiful Doc Watson and Mississippi John Hurt were.

Ian Zulick

Singing on the beat and picking across the beat: you don't really appreciate just how hard that is to get right until you sit down and try it yourself. Country blues is one of the most unforgiving styles to learn, but also one of the most rewarding.

Ronan Mcintyre

Yes! I can play some decent finger picking riffs but a lot of shit falls apart when I try to keep them going while I sing a melody
