Thread Name: Lyr Req: Davy, Davy / Goin' up the River
Subject: 'Davy, Davy' or 'Goin' Up The River'
Hello from Missouri!

I'm looking for some more words to a fiddle-tune-type "song" called "Davy, Davy" or "Goin' Up The River." I found two "verses" under the title "Davy" as recorded by the New Lost City Ramblers.

I have several other very short verses:

The boat began to rock and I began to shiver,
Oh my little girl I'm goin' up the river.

Night so dark, road so muddy
I'm so drunk I can't stand steady

All I need to make me happy
is two little guys to call me pappy.

One named Sam, the other Davy
One likes ham, the other likes gravy

When you're playing this at fiddle-tune speed, it's over before you know it, so I'd like more if anyone out there has any... The chicken house ones from the New Lost City Ramblers are pretty short, too.

Sincerely, Win Grace
