Well, take me back down where cool water flow, yeh
Let me remember things I love
Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite,
Walkin' along the river road at night,
Barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight

I can hear the bull frog callin' me
Wonder if my rope's still hangin' to the tree
Love to kick my feet  way down the shallow water,
Shoe fly, dragon fly, get back t your mother
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River

Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, oh,
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, Junior took me over,
Said, you're gonna find the world is smouldrin'
An' if you get lost come on home to Green River
Well, come home
