Your mama used to worry about that big muddy river
Honey do you remember?
You let the screen door slam when you stepped off the front porch
Hear ya mama calling don't be late
And I'd hear ya daddy holler son she's my only daughter
You stick your nose in the honeysuckle down by the gate
I can still hear ya mama calling don't go near the water

We fell right in way over our heads
But we didn't go near the water
A love ran deep so young and sweet
And the nights got hotter and hotter
We're sure enough gettin' our feet wet mama 
But we didn't go near the water

We hear a rockin' chair squeekin' as we sneaked up the back stairs 
Mama waitin like a grizzly bear
We had to get the honeysuckle out of your hair
But in the morning light you'd look her right in the eye
You wouldn't lie 
We didn't go near the water

We fell right in way over our heads
But we didn't go near the water
A love ran deep so young and sweet
And the nights got hotter and hotter
We're sure enough gettin' our feet wet mama 
But we didn't go near the water

Your mama used to worry about that big muddy river
She should've worried about me
Cause we were sure enough gettin' our feet wet mama 
But we didn't go near the water

We didn't go near the water
Didn't go near the water

Yeah
