Downstream

Now me and Mark Twain was havin' us a ball
Telling each other lies, floating down from Hannibal...
With a bottle and a worm and a cane pole
We were fishin' for secrets where the catfish crawl...

And the Mississippi River's flowing downstream
Meet the Gulf of Mexico somewhere downstream
Meet the Atlantic Ocean somewhere downstream
Gonna meet you in the water somewhere downstream...

Well we picked up Harry Truman
Floatin' down from Independence...
We said "What about the war?"
He said "Good riddance"...
We said "What about the Bomb, are you sorry that you did it?"...
He said "Pass me that bottle
And mind your own business"...

And the Mississippi River's flowing downstream
Meet the Gulf of Mexico somewhere downstream
Meet the Atlantic Ocean somewhere downstream
Gonna meet you in the water somewhere downstream...

We were rounding St. Louis and headin' for the coast...
When we picked up Chuck Berry in a little rowboat...
With one oar in the water and one oar in the air
A lightning rod for a white guitar...

And lightning struck once and lightning struck twice...
I said "If there's a God, He sure ain't nice"...
And Chuck said "God is an Indian giver
I don't trust nothing but the Mississippi River"...

And the Mississippi River's flowing downstream
Meet the Gulf of Mexico somewhere downstream
Meet the Atlantic Ocean somewhere downstream
Gonna meet you in the water somewhere downstream...

And the Mississippi River's flowing downstream
Meet the Gulf of Mexico somewhere downstream
Meet the Atlantic Ocean somewhere downstream
Gonna meet you in the water somewhere downstream...

Gonna meet you in the water...
