Green River Lyrics

by John Fogerty

Well, take me back down, cool water flows, yeah
Let me remember things I love
Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite
Walkin' along the river road at night
Barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight

I can hear the bullfrog callin' me how
Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree
Love to kick my feet 'way down the shallow water
Shoe fly, dragonfly, get back your mother
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River
Well!

Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, yeah
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, junior took me over
Said, "You're gonna find the world is smould'rin'
And if you get lost come on home to Green River"
Well!
