MickyMan Lyr Add: River Blues/Ready for the River,new verse (4) Lyr Add: River Blues - another verse (Shivaree Ri 01 Mar 09


This song has always seemed to have only one verse (see below) and so I wrote another one. What do mudcatters think?

Verse 1
I'm ready for that river, that Shivaree River,
So get that river ready for me,
I'm gonna drown my troubles, there'll be just a bubble,
To indicate what used to be me.
I made my will, I wrote some notes, I'm gonna keep on walkin' till my straw hat floats,
I'm ready for that river, that Shivaree River,
So get that river ready for me,

verse 2 (my made up one ...)
I'm ready for that river, that Shivaree River,
So get that river ready for me,
Forget my earthly wishes, I'd be singin' with the fishes,
And all the world 'be singin' songs of me.
My woman would be cryin', my friends would be sad,
They'd be talkin' 'bout me like I wasn't so bad!
I'm ready for that river, that Shivaree River,
So get that river ready for me,
