DEEP RIVER BLUES (Eddie Green / Lucile Marie Handy) W.C. Handy - 1925 Willard Robison - 1926 Novelty Blue Boys - 1927 Ray Starita's Piccadilly Revels Band - 1927 Louis Armstrong & The All Stars - 1954 As recorded by WILLARD ROBISON: Deep river, deep river Mississippi River so deep and wide My heart is yearnin' as I watch the evenin' tide Because I'm over here, my girl is on the other side Deep river, deep river When I'm worried I come to you I sit beside you when I'm feelin' blue 'Cause you're the only one that I can tell my troubles to If I had the means I'd go to New Orleans But right at this time I ain't got a dime to spare At break of day I'll steal away There's no one to care or wanta know where I'm gone And if I get the blues, I'll take off my shoes I'll look at the Lord and jump overboard and drown Deep river blues, I can’t refuse Your sweet melody I’ll always be by your side When the evenin' tide comes along Oh, Mississippi, hear my sorrow song Then my tribulation won't last so long Come to me and set me free From those deep river blues Transcribed from John Wright’s 78 RPM Record Collection (Transcribed by Bill Huntley - June 2013 updated by Mel Priddle - May 2018))
