Down by the River
Ken Boothe Lyrics


(Oh yeah) I'll be down by the river
Waiting for the good Lord to pass my way
(Oh yeah) I'll be down by the river
Singing songs of joy on this lovely day
(Oh yeah)

Three singing birds told me
By sunrise he's always there in the morning
Praying And blessing the day
I heard about this little tale long time ago
But never had the faith to believe in my soul (yeah)
Now mother sent to me three little birds
Singing a son convincing me it was so
Now I'm on my way
Anyone come to see me this day
Tell them I'll be gone for the day

(Oh yeah) I'll be down by the river
Waiting for the good Lord to pass my way
(Oh yeah) I'll be down by the river
Singing songs of joy on this lovely day
(Oh yeah)

I heard about this little tale long time ago
But never had the faith to believe in my soul (yeah)
Now mother sent to me three little birds
Singing a son convincing me it was so
Now I'm on my way
Anyone come to see me this day
Tell them I'll be gone for the day

(Oh yeah) I'll be down by the river
Waiting for the good Lord to pass my way
(Oh yeah) I'll be down by the river
Singing songs of joy on this lovely day
(Oh yeah)

Great version of this song by Mr Booth

Paul Snider

Merry Clayton (the woman who sang the "rape, murder" hook in "Gimme Shelter") cut a sweet soul version of "Southern Man" which appears on her self-titled LP; well worth checking out.

John O’groats

My favourite singer singing my other favourite singer, yes please :) However I have too admit that Neil Young's version has my preference. Good vibes still!
