Harlem River Blues Song Lyrics

Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown
Dirty water gonna cover me over
And I’m not gonna make a sound

*******

I’m on a roll, mama, I gotta go
Gotta get there while I still can
Troubled days are behind me now
And I know they’re gonna let me in
When you see me walkin’ up the FDR
Just a-singin’ and a-clappin’ my hands
Tell my mama I love her, tell my father I tried
Give my money to my baby to spend

*******

‘Cause Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown
Dirty water gonna cover me over
And I’m not gonna make a sound

*******

Good times come and they go
Even a good man’ll break
He’ll let his troubles bury him whole
Even though he knows what’s at stake
So I’m taking no chances
Carrying over while I’m still good in His grace
Sayin’ I’m no fool, mama
I know the difference between tempting and choosing my fate

*******

So Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown
Dirty water gonna cover me over
And I’m not gonna make a sound

*******

Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown
Dirty water gonna cover me over
And I’m not gonna make a sound

Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown
Dirty water gonna cover me over
And I’m not gonna make a sound…..

Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown

Dirty water’s gonna cover me over and I’m not gonna make a sound

I’m on a roll, mama, I gotta go, I gotta get there while I still can

Troubled days are behind me now and I know they’re gonna let me in

So when you see me walkin’ up the FDR, just a-singin’ and a-clappin’ my hands

Tell my mama I love her, tell my father I tried, give my money to my baby to spend

Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown

Dirty water’s gonna cover me over and I’m not gonna make a sound

Good times come and they go, even a good man’ll break

He’ll let his troubles bury him whole even though he knows what’s at stake

So I’m taking no chances, carrying over while I’m still good in His grace

I’m no fool, mama, I know the difference between tempting and choosing my fate

Lord, I’m goin’ uptown to the Harlem River to drown

Dirty water’s gonna cover me over and I’m not gonna make a sound
