                TEXAS RIVER SONG (traditional)
Lyle Lovett (1998)



capo 3, 3/4 time

   C
We crossed the wild Pecos
   F            C
We forded the Nueces
    C
We swum the Guadalupe
       G
And we followed the Brazos
    C
Red River runs rusty
    F       C
The Wichita clear
    C
But down by the Brazos
  G          C
I courted my dear


        C            
Singing li, li, le, le, le
F            C
Lend me your hand
C
Li, li, li, le, le, le
G            C
Lend me your hand
C
Li, li, li, le, le, le
F            C
Lend me your hand
        C
There's many a river
     G           C
That waters the land


Now the fair Angelina
Ruins glossy and gliding
The crooked Colorado
Runs weaving and winding
The slow San Antonio
Courses the plains
But I never will walk
By the Brazos again


Singing li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
There's many a river
That waters the land

She kissed me and she hugged me
And she called me her dandy
The Trinity's muddy
But the Brazos quick sandy
She kissed me and she hugged me
And she called me her own
But down by the Brazos
She left me alone

Singing li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
There's many a river
That waters the land

INSTRUMENTAL

Now the girls of Little River
They're plump and they're pretty
The Sabine and the Sulphur
Hold beauties a'many
The banks of the Neches
There's girls by the score
But down by the Brazos
I'll wander no more

Singing li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
There's many a river
That waters the land

Singing li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
Li, li, li, le, le, le
Lend me your hand
There's many a river
That waters the land
