"Riverboat Annie" lyrics

Riverboat Annie

Riverboat Annie
Drinks muddy water
Raised on a river
She was a fisherman's daughter
She was a mother to every child
Up and down the river
For a hundred miles
Catfish and cornbread
Come time for supper
Riverboat Annie
She's the queen of the river

Riverboat Annie
Loved me and kept me
Found me on the river
Where somebody left me
Ah, she taught me to read and write
And how to catch a catfish
Smoke, drink and fight
Riverboat Annie
Everybody's neighbor
Mississippi mother
Queen of the river

As she got older
In the cool of the day
You could hear her singing
In the glory-land way
I guess I was almost grown
Before she left me
And the river home
Catfish and cornbread
How I remember
Riverboat Annie
Queen of the river

She's a Mississippi mother
Queen of the river
My riverboat Annie, yeah
Queen of the river
