Honestly, I can understand most of it, but I don't have time right now to transcribe it. If no one else gets it, I could get it some time in the next week or so. Just bump it back up with a refresh.

Here's a start at least. I'm not totally sure about the "lock-in no. 1" part, but that's the best I could make sense of it.

The "All" verses repeat continually, so I stopped notating it after its first time. But it remains repeated after every line break.

Lead: Some claim that we are land-locked kids
All: Water, boys, water!
Lead: But I don't find that quite so clear
All: All around us, water
Lead: For nearly two blocks from my home, the Mississippi southward roams
All: Flowing to the sea (x3)

Lock-in Number One's not very large
It only holds one tub, one barge
But nine miles down the St. Paul part, that's where the heavy traffic starts



Stopped around a minute 25 seconds in.

Trackhorse: after much delay, I can now say I have finished transcribing the lyrics here for you (albeit, it took much longer than the week I promised). Hope you get to see them or you find them somehow. After the first stanza, the lyrics given are just the leaders, with the All choruses the same after each line break

Lead: Some claim that we are land-locked kids
All: Water, boys, water!
Lead: But I don't find that quite so clear
All: All around us, water
Lead: For nearly two blocks from my home, the Mississippi southward roams
All: Flowing to the sea (x3)

Lock-in Number One's not very large
It only holds one tug, one barge
But nine miles down the St. Paul part, that's where the heavy traffic starts

But 'cross the bridge the water falls
Yeah, but when it's cold, the water thaws
Then morphs into an icy sheet, yet that solid water keeps

Below the dam the waters dance
And wandering lovers seek romance
Looking for a love that lasts, where troubled water flowed by fast

Along the banks by Crosby Lake
A barred owl's call, you can't mistake
Who cooks for you, he'd like to know, as you watch his river go

Now half my life or more I'll spend
Living in this river bend
But someday soon I'll launch a craft, hope you may be a raft, and go

To Lake Itasca's shores I'd go
To dream upon that river slow
Imagine bridges, towns, and city scenes, St. Lewis, Memphis, New Orleans
