Ain't Going Down to the River
Ain’t Going Down to the River

I ain’t going down to the river with you
Like all the girls before
Cause in every other town- when they do
They don’t come back no more

Tall handsome stranger whispering sweet in my ear
You’re saying every single thing I wanna hear
I’ve never seen a fellow quite so debonair
But there’s something in your smile telling me I’d best beware

I ain’t going down to the river with you
Like all the girls before
Cause in every other town- when they do
They don’t come back no more

There’s stories round here ‘of a killer walking the hills
Stalking pretty girls from Knoxville to Thomasville
He confessed every time but his daddy’s money set him free
And from everything I’ve heard he sounds a lot like you to me

I ain’t going down to the river with you
Like all the girls before
Cause in every other town- when they do
They don’t come back no more

Polly, Rose, and Sadie- some of your old flames
But you won’t add mine- to that list of names…No

I ain’t going down to the river with you
Like all the girls before
Cause in every other town- when they do
They don’t come back no more
