Cotton Mouth River
J. Croce
Album: 50th Anniversary Collection


INTRO: G

       G                          Em
Well I know that I shouldn't have done it
  C            D           G
I know that it just wasn't right
                                    G/F#         Em
'Cause they got me backed up to the Cotton Mouth River
      C           D       G
And I can't cross late at night


CHORUS:
             D                              G
Yeah there's lots of stories told about the Cotton Mouth River
C                        D
They tell them time and again
          G                           G/F#     Em
About the men who tried to cross that river by moonlight
    C          D           G
And never were heard from again


If I had my life to live over
I'd a gone to work that day
Instead of goin' into town and shootin' him down
For a thing I never heard him say


CHORUS


Well I just made it thru the canebreak
And I got one foot in the mud
I can hear the hounds a-bayin' but the snake around my ankle's
Tellin' me my runnin' days are done


CHORUS (2x)
