Louie Roy Lyr Req: Steamboat Whistle Blues (Roy Acuff) (12) RE: Lyr Req: Steamboat Whistle Blues (Roy Acuff) 29 Apr 15


In the 1930s we had a 78 record with a similar song with different words but the same tune and this what I remember

I went across the river and I lied down to sleep
I went across the river and I lied down to sleep
When I awoke I had shackles on my ankle and my feet

21 links of chain around each ankle
21 links of chain around each ankle
And on each link was a initial of my name
