Waterfront

Music & Lyrics Paul Dougherty

Come on down to the rodeo
Won’t you have a round with me
If you don’t want to, then just say so
Another man caught and another one free

I’m going down to the river
Trying to say these words in rhyme
A courtier, standing on your fingers
Do a little jig and drink a little wine

Ch
My love rolls like a river
That’s the way this big world goes
My love, I’m going down to the waterfront
That’s the way that the river rolls
That’s the way that the steamboat blows

So put on your derby hat
Let’s go to the circus and take a ride
All too much of this and that
I’ll go to the races and find myself a bride

Ch
My love rolls like a river
That’s the way this big world goes
My love, I’m going down to the waterfront
That’s the way that the river rolls
That’s the way that the steamboat blows

Sitting by your window you wave
I guess everything is bound to end
Where everything is American made
So I play a few cards and drink a little gin
I play a few cards and buy a little sin

Ch
My love rolls like a river
That’s the way this big world goes
My love, I’m going down to the waterfront
That’s the way that the river rolls
That’s the way that the steamboat blows
