Em      G        A/C#     C
Old man go to the river
D   B/D#           Em    G7      single notes: g a b
To drop his bale of woes
C       A/C#      G  D/F#  Em
He could go if he wanted to
C          A/C#     G   D/F#  Em    A7
It's just a boat to row you know, whoa

listen to me now...

Chorus:
G          C             D     
Blue river keep right on rollin'
D    B/D#     Em       G7        single notes: g a b
All along the shoreline
C       D             G    D/F#    Em
Keep us safe from the deep And the dark
C                D         G
We don't want to stray too far

|C        |G    D/F#|

I spent the day with my old dog Mo
Walkin' down an old dirt road
What he's thinkin' about well
I don't know
But for him I bet the time
Just goes so slow
He's just a dog you know
Listen to me now...

Chorus:
Blue river keep right on rollin'
All along the shoreline
Keep us safe from the deep and the dark
Don't want to stray too far

Young man stands with his axe in his hand
Believin' that the crops are all in
Firewood stacked ten by ten
For the wife, the folks, the kids
And all of the kin
And a friend...

Chorus:
Blue river keep right on rollin'
All along the shoreline
keep us safe from the deep and the dark
We don't want to stray too far
We don't want to stray too far
Don't want to stray too far
