OPENER - CLOSER    Basic

4 ladies promenade go once around the ring
And then you swing your man
You join hands, circle left around and then
Left allemande, weave the ring
Well my baby's done gone
And you dosado and then you promenade
It's gonna take a lot of river
To wash these blues away


FIGURE    Mainstream, corner progression

Heads promenade travel halfway round
And then the sides square thru
Go all the way around, right & left thru
Eight chain 6 and then
It's gonna take the Mississippi, the Monongahela
And the corner swing, promenade
It's gonna take a lotta river
To wash these blues away


MIDDLE BREAK    Mainstream

Sides face, grand square
It's gonna take a lotta river
To keep this broken heart afloat
It's gonna take a lotta river
Runnin' all the live long day

4 ladies promenade once around the ring
Back home and swing your man and promenade
It's gonna take a lotta rive
To wash these blues away

Gonna Take A Lot Of River
 
 

I ain't gonna ride no rail or hitchhike down no highway
I ain't going nowhere feeling the way I do
Because my baby's long gone and nothings going my way
I'm gonna let this muddy water just wash away my blues

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away

Well I wish I was tugboat pushing and pulling them barges along
Moving on the water with a heart made of iron and steel
There wouldn't be no woman that could ever take my loving and do me wrong
I could work all day with nothing in the world to feel

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away

Is she in New Orleans is she a Cajun queen
I wonder what she's doing now
But if I know her she's got rings and furs
Struggling along somehow

Gonna take a lot of river to keep this broken heart afloat
Gonna take a lot of river running all the live long day
Gonna take the Mississippi the Monongahela and the Ohio
Gonna take a lot of river to wash these blues away

Lyrics by Mark Henley and John Kurhajetz.
Recorded by The Oak Ridge Boys.
