Steamboat on the Mississippi
and the year was eighty nine.
There was a woman on board
with hair like gold and lips like cherry wine.
I was just sixteen and I climbed on board
to see what I could see.
Her name of hair, her ruby lips,
her flashing eye, attracted me,
her flashing eye, attracted me.

If youíve got silver, lay it down
If youíve got gold, let it shine.
But if you canít lay it down
and you canít shine.
Then brother get of this gravy boat,
cause you ainít no friend of mine.Ē
She said: ďBrother get of this gravy boat
cause you ainít no friend of mine.Ē

That is when I found out
that there is love and lust. . .

I found myself in another part
of the floating devilís den.
There where more folks there,
throwing money away
than I guess I donít know when,
they where playing cards and rolling dice
and spinning numbered wheels.
But I didnít have dough to throw away.
So I never found out how good it feels.
I never found out how good it feels.

If youíve got silver, lay it down
If youíve got gold, let it shine.
But if you canít lay it down
and you canít shine.
Brother get of this gravy boat,
cause you ainít no friend of mine.
Brother get of this gravy boat,
cause you ainít no friend of mine.

That set me considering. . .

I sat alone out on the deck,
thinking what Iíd seen.
Thinking most folks go through life
and dream what might have been.
Made up my mind, right there and then.
I wouldnít be one of them,
I wouldnít head the call,
that caught them all
and never let them go again,
never let them go again.

If youíve got silver, lay it down.
If youíve got gold, let it shine.
If you canít lay it down
and you canít shine.
Then brother get of this gravy boat,
cause you ainít no friend of mine.

If youíve got silver, lay it down.
If youíve got gold, let it shine.
But if you canít lay it down
and you canít shine.
Brother get of this gravy boat,
cause you ainít no friend of mine.

If youíve got silver, lay it down. . .
