Well, take me back down where cool water flows, yeah.
Let me remember things I love,
Stopping at the log where catfish bite,
C
Walking along the river road at night,
A                                        E
Barefoot girls dancing in the moonlight.

I can hear the bullfrog calling me.
Wonder if my rope's still hanging to the tree.
Love to kick my feet way down the shallow water.
C
Shoefly, dragonfly, get back t'your mother.
A                                                E
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River.

Well!

Up at Cody's camp I spent my days, oh,
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody Junior took me over,
C
Said, "You're gonna find the world is smouldering.
    A                                             E
And if you get lost come on home to Green River."

Well!

Come on home.
