Rising River Blues

This song is by George Carter and appears on the compilation A Richer Tradition: Country Blues and String Band Music 1923-1942 (2007).

Rising river blues, runnin' by my door
Rising river blues, runnin' by my door
They runnin', sweet mama, like they haven't run before

I got to move in the alley, I ain't 'lowed on your street
I got to move in the alley, I ain't 'lowed on the street
These rising river blues sure have got me beat

Mmm...

Come here, sweet mama, let me speak my mind
Come here, sweet mama, let me speak my mind
To cure these blues gon' take a long, long time
