Boatman

(Dale Robin Goodman)
traditional

Boatman dance, boatman sing and boatman do most anything When the boatman come on the shore, he spends all his money and he works for more [chorus] Dance Boatman dance, dance Boatman dance Oh dance all night til the broad day light Go home with the girls in the morning Whoa- ho Boatman go, up and down the river on the O-hi-o Whoa- ho Boatman go, up and down the river on the O-hi-o Did ya ever see where the boatman lives, in a house in a hollow with a roof like a sieve Boatman said if the rain comes down, if I got any wetter well I think I’d drown [chorus]
