lyrics

I’m gonna drag you down to the river, pretty baby,
Gonna wash your ways down there,
I’m gonna drag you down to the river pretty baby,
With my fingers through your long black hair,

I don’t have to catch you runnin’ round baby,
Know your name all over town,
You got fifty six keys to forty seven men,
And I heard you shut the cathouse down.

I been a’ sittin here weepin’ at the table every evenin’
Just a wonderin’ where you’ve been.
I’m gonna drag you down to the river pretty baby,
Gonna wash away your sin.

I dragged myself down city streets,
To the place you sell your meats,
Yeah I nearly kicked the door on in,
First you were kickin’ and a screamin’
Then a’beggin and a’pleadin,
Till I dragged you to the house again.

Well your wicked ways and your debaucherous days,
Are gonna make a fool of me and you.
I’m gonna drag you down to the river pretty baby,
That’s exactly what I’m gonna do.

I’m gonna drag you down to the river, pretty baby,
Gonna wash away your sin,
I’m gonna drag you down to the river pretty baby,
Gonna throw your ass on in!
