Lyrics to Ol' Man River
Ol' Man River Video:
Here we all work 'long the MississippiHere we all work while the white folks playPullin' them boats from the dawn 'til sunsetGettin' no rest 'til the judgment dayDon't look up, don't look downYou don't dare make the bossman frownBend your knees, bow your headPull that rope until you're deadLet me go 'way from the MississippiLet me go 'way from the white man bossShow me that stream called the River JordanThat's the ol' stream that I long to crossOl' Man River, that Ol' Man RiverHe don't say nothin', but he must know somethin'He just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' alongHe don't plant taters and he don't plant cottonAnd then what plants 'em are soon forgottenBut Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' alongYou and me, we sweat and strainBody all achin' and racked with painTote that barge and lift that baleYou get a little drunk and you land in jailI gets weary and sick of tryin'I'm tired of living but I'm scared of dyin'And Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' alongOl' Man River...
