Gonna Take a Lot of River  The Oak Ridge Boys

I ain't gonna ri[C]de no rail or hitchhike down no highway[G7]
I aint' going nowhere feeling the way I [C]do
Because my baby's long gone and nothings going [G7]my way
I'm gonna let this muddy water just wash away my [C]blues
Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken [G7]heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long [C]day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the [G7]Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues [C]away
Well I wish I was tug boat pushing and pulling them barges [G7]along
Moving on the water with a heart made of iron and [C]steel
There wouldn't be no woman that could ever
Take my loving and do me [G7]wrong
I could work all day with nothing in the world to [C]feel
Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken [G7]heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long [C]day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the [G7]Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues [C]away
Is she in [F]New Orleans is she a [G#m]Cajun queen
I [A#]wonder what she's doing [C]now
But if [F]I know her she's got [G#]rings and furs
[A#]Struggling along some[C]how
Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken [G7]heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long [C]day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the [G7]Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues [C]away
