Old Folks At Home / Ol' Man River lyrics

Ol' man river
That ol' man river
He must say something (he don't know nothin')
But he don't say nothing
That ol' man river
He just keeps rollin' along
He don't plant taters
He don't plant cotton
And them that plants 'em
Are soon forgotten
That ol' man river
He just keeps rolling along
That ol' man river
He just keeps rolling along
