Lazy River Road Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Way down upon Sycamore Slough
White man sings the blues
Selling roses of paper mache
And flecks of starlight dew

Swiped a bunch and threw them your way
Where hazy moonlight glows
Way down, down along lazy river road

Way down upon Shadowfall Ward
End of the avenue
Run, hide, seek in your own backyard
Mama's backyard won't do

All night long I sing love's sweet songs
Down where the water flows
Way down, down along lazy river road

Moonlight wanes as hound dogs bay
Never quite catch the tune
Stars fall down in buckets like rain
There ain't no standin' room

Bright blue boxcars train by train
Clatter while dreams unfold
Way down, down along lazy river road

Way down upon Seminole Square
Belly of the river tide
Call for me and I will be there
For the price of a taxi ride

Nighttime double clutches into the day
Like a truck down shifting it's load
Way down, down along lazy river road

Moonlight wanes as hound dogs bay
Never quite catch the tune
Stars fall down in buckets like rain
There ain't no standin' room

Bright blue boxcars train by train
Clatter while dreams unfold
Way down, down along lazy river road

Thread the needle right through the eye
The thread that runs so true
All the others I let pass by
I only wanted you

Never cared much for careless love
Oh, how your bright eyes glow
Way down, down along lazy river road
Way down, down along lazy river road
Way down, down along lazy river road
