If the River Was Whiskey

If the River Was Whiskey

If the river was whiskey and I was a duck
I'd dive to the bottom and I'd never come up

Oh tell me how long do I have to wait
Oh can I get you now, mustn't hesitate

If the river was whiskey and the branch was wine
You'd see me in swimming just any ole time

I was born in England, raised in France
I bought a suit of clothes and they wouldn't send the pants

I was born in Alabama, raised in Tennesee
If you don't like my peaches then don't shake my tree

I looked down the road just as far as I can see
A man had my woman and the blues had me

I ain't no doctor but the doctor's son
I can do the doctoring till the doctor comes

Got the hesitation stockings got the hesitation shoes
Oh my Lord I got the hesitation blues

I was born in Kingston, raised in Rosendale
I went through a stop sign and they threw me in jail
