Texas River Song Lyrics

(Trad.)
We cross the wild Pecos,
We forded the Nueces,
We swum the Guadalupe,
And we followed the Brazos;
Red River runs rusty,
The Wichita clear,
But down by the Brazos
I courted my dear.
Chorus: Singing li li li, le le le,
Lend me your hand,
Li li li, le le le,
Lend me your hand,
Li li li, le le le,
Lend me your hand,
There's many a river
That waters the land.
Now the fair Angelina
runs glossy and gliding,
The crooked Colorado
runs weaving and winding,
The slow San Antonio
courses the plains,
But I never will walk
by the Brazos again.
Chorus:
She kissed me and she hugged me,
And she called me her dandy,
The Trinity's muddy
But the Brazos quicksandy,
She kissed me and she hugged me,
And she called me her own,
But down by the Brazos,
She left me alone.
Chorus:
Now the girls of Little River
They're plump and they're pretty
The Sabine and the Sulphur
Hold beauties a-many,
The banks of the Neches,
There are girls by the score,
But down by the Brazos,
I'll wander no more.
