Steamboat whistle blues

I crossed the river, I felt fast asleep
Crossed the river, I felt fast asleep
Crossed the river, I felt fast asleep
When I woke, I had shackles on my feet

    I thought I heard that steamboat whistle blow
    I thought I heard that steamboat whistle blow
    I thought I heard that steamboat whistle blow
    Blow like she's never blowed before

I said Judge what might be my fine ?
I said Judge what might be my fine ?
I said Judge what might be my fine ?
Sixty days away on down the line

 * Refarin

Sixty days in a lonesome jail to go
Sixty days in a lonesome jail to go
Sixty days in a lonesome jail to go
I can't hear that steamboat whistle blow

 * Refrain
