Lyrics: John Fogerty
Music: John Fogerty
Played by John Fogerty with the Grateful Dead at the memorial for Bill Graham on 3 November 1991. Also played in 2009 by the Donna Jean Godchaux Band with Jeff Mattson.
Well, take me back down where cool water flows
Let me remember things I love
Stoppin' at the log where catfish bite
Walkin' along the river road at night
Barefoot girls dancin' in the moonlight
I can hear the bullfrog callin' me
Wondering if my rope's still hangin' to the tree
Love to kick my feet 'way down the shallow water
Shoefly, dragonfly, get back t'your mother
Pick up a flat rock, skip it across Green River
Up at Cody's camp I spent my days
With flat car riders and cross-tie walkers
Old Cody, Junior took me over
Said, "You're gonna find the world is smould'rin'
And if you get lost come on home to Green River"
