Rivers of Texas

We crossed the broad Pecos, we forded the Nueces
Swum the Guadalupe, we followed the Brazos
Red River runs rusty, the Wichita clear
But down by the Brazos I courted my dear

  Li li li lee lee lee, give me your hand
  Li li li lee lee lee, give me your hand
  Li li li lee lee lee, give me your hand
  There's many a river that waters the land

The sweet Angelina runs glossy and gliding
The crooked Colorado runs weaving and winding
The slow San Antonio courses the plain
But I never will walk by the Brazos again

The girls on Little River, they're plump and they're pretty
The Sabine and Sulphur have many a beauty
And down by the Natchez there's girls by the score
But I never will walk by the Brazos no more

She hugged me and kissed me and called me her dandy
The Trinity is muddy, the Brazos quick sandy
I hugged her and kissed her and called her my own
But down by the Brazos she left me alone

recorded by Sandy and Caroline Paton
  and by Ellen Stekert and Milt Okum
