Old Riley walked the water

In them long hot summer days
Old Riley he is gone

Old Riley he is gone

In them long hot summer days
Riley walked the water

Here, Rattler, here

Old Riley walked the water

Here, Rattler, here
Old Riley's gone like a turkey in the corn

Here, Rattler, here
Old Riley's gone like a turkey in the corn

Here, Rattler, here
Rattler come when I blow my horn

Here, Rattler, here

Old Rattler come when I blow my horn

Here, Rattler, here
Old Rattler's got him a marrow bone

Here, Rattler, here
Old Rattler's got him a marrow bone

Here, Rattler, here
Old Riley's gone like a turkey in the corn

Here, Rattler, here

Old Riley's gone like a turkey through the corn

Here, Rattler, here
Old Riley walked the water

Old Riley walked the water

In them long hot summer days
