GUEST,Dave (the ancient mariner) Song Challenge: The Unsinkable Tugboat (33) RE: Song Challenge: The Unsinkable Tugboat 18 Feb 05


Congo River (Tombigbee River)

Was you ever up the Tombigbee river
Roll Boys Roll
Where Bridges make the Captain Quiver
Roll My Tugboat Roll

A Yankee tug came down the river
Roll Boys Roll
Her mast all bent and engines shiver
Roll My Tugboat Roll

Where did her barge go, tell me skipper
Roll Boys Roll
Why ahead one mile in the direction o me flipper
Roll My Tugboat Roll

Ahead full speed,flood waters flowing
Roll Boys Roll
How we stayed afloat,never knowing
Roll My Tugboat Roll

Damned near drowned, all us sinners
Roll Boys Roll
Cook got wet and lost our dinners
Roll My Tugboat Roll

Never coming down the Tombigbee sailing
Roll Boys Roll
When floodwaters run oer the Roosters railing
Roll My Tugboat Roll
