I'll try later to get some lyrics.

Allmusic.com has a sound sample from which I transcribed this:

...Annie
Drink muddy water
Raised on a river
She was a fisherman's daughter
She was a mother to every child
Up and down the river for a hundred miles
Catfish and cornbread
Come time for supper
Riverboat Annie
She's the queen of....

Unfortunately, Googling with phrases from these lyrics turns up nothing.

RIVERBOAT ANNIE
As sung by Carl Perkins on "On Top" (1969)

1. Riverboat Annie
Drinks muddy water
Raised on a river
She was a fisherman's daughter
She was a mother to every child
Up and down the river for a hundred miles
Catfish and cornbread
Come time for supper
Riverboat Annie
She's the queen of the river

2. Riverboat Annie
Loved me and kept me
Found me on the river
Where somebody left me
Ah, she taught me to read and write
And how to catch a catfish, smoke drink and fight
Riverboat Annie
Ever'body's neighbor
Mississippi mother
Queen of the river

3. As she got older
In the cool of the day
You could hear her singin'
In the glory-land way
I guess I was almost grown
Before she left me and the river home
Catfish and cornbread
How I remember
Riverboat Annie
Queen of the river

She's a Mississippi mother
Queen of the river
My riverboat Annie, yeah,
Queen of the river
