about

NEW RIVER BLUES written by Michael Hurley 2006.

lyrics

as the new river flows in the night
somewhere honey, some old hog
is stomping on the bog
like a free, like a free stream of light
my heart jumps straight to you tonight

cause you're pretty, lordy knows, and you're fair
and you seem like you kind...of linger there
like a hot, like a hot burnin' flame
my heart jumps straight to you again

for i knew, lordy knows that you're there
and the New River flow, flows round the town
and the king-fisher fishin' in the shoal
my heart jumps straight right out of my soul

and a catfish, catfish on the bottom
i'm up here with the blues, lordy knows that i got 'em
i hope the moonbeams shine down to you
so you can sing away the whole night through

as the New River flows in the night
somewhere honey, some ol' hog
is stomping on the bog
like a free, like a free stream of light
my heart jumps straight to you tonight.
oh, my heart jumps straight to you tonight.
