Slippery St. Paul Lyrics

by The Doobie Brothers

Down along the river
Where the big bulrushes grow
You find the old frog jumpin' the water

He won't come up no more, babe
He won't come up no more, baby
He won't come up no more, woo
He won't come up no more, sugar mama
He won't come up no more

Smell that burnin' fire, baby
Burnin' in the sand
See that devil rise, mama

He sho' wanna take yo' hand, now
He sho' wanna take yo' hand, baby
He sho' wanna take yo' hand, woo
He sho' wanna take yo' hand, sugar mama
He sho' wanna take yo' hand

Oh, harvest moon
Keep shinin' your light down on me
The Lord reach out his hand
My soul floats out to thee

I don't feel no pain
When they shot me down
Lay my body out, baby

They put me in the ground so cold
They put me in the ground, baby
They put me in the ground, woo
They put me in the ground, sugar mama
They put me in the ground
