Lyrics

Going up Coal River, coming down no more
Going up Coal River, coming down no more
Gonna leave your town, pretty baby, stop knockin' on your back door

Goin' across deep water, and no skiffs around
Across deep water, and no skiffs around
Just stop our boat, pretty baby, just let 'er sink on down

My Mama told me, baby, my Papa told me, too
My Mama told me, pretty baby, my Papa told me, too
If you love that little woman, gonna have a place to go

Don't want no woman, got hair like horse's mane
Don't want no woman, got hair like a horse's mane
Well, they're so doggone evil, want every woman's man

Ah, broke down in tears today
Ah, broke down in tears today
I got the blues so bad, pretty mama, I can't see a way
