The group started as a San Francisco Bay Area nightclub act with an original lineup of Dave Guard, Bob Shane, and Nick Reynolds. It rose to international popularity, fueled by unprecedented sales of 33⅓ rpm long-playing record albums (LPs), and helped to alter the direction of popular music in the U.S. more »

(John Stewart)
[Chorus: x 2]

Oh Joe Hannah, don't you work so long. 
Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? (Last time - Oh Joe Hannah!)
Thirteen years I've been workin' on the river. Thirteen years since you've been gone.
Thirteen years and you'd better go home. Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? Oh!

[Chorus]

Thirteen years I've been workin' on the river. Thirteen years that ain't so long.
Thirteen years and you'd better go home. Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? Oh!

[Chorus]
Thirteen years I've been workin' on the river. Thirteen years I've been alone.
Thirteen years and you'd better go home. Don't you know the river is wide? Don't you know the mountain is high? Oh!

[Chorus]
