Bring The Water On Down

 

Hey good Jessie Schucky's comin' around

Take care upon the mountain

Bring her water on down poor boy

Bring her water on down

 

Hey Cap'n Jackson steerin' in good time

Forgivin' not forgotten

Saved a  daughter found poor boy

Saved a daughter found

 

            One golden ring I may not drown

            In a river smart so pretty

            For a fever's breakin' softer ground

            In shiny eyes sure fittin'

 

            Bring her water on down poor boy

            Bring her water on down

 

Hey dear Mama leathers pullin'

The  northern locks are soundin'

Bringin' the water on down poor boy

Bringin' the water on down

 

(Chorus)

 

Hey good Jessie hold on to the hills

He gives us to the mountains

Bringin'the water on down poor boy

He brings the water on down

 

(Chorus)

 

Poor boy  he brings the water on down
