lyrics

Sheriff John McBee - where can your daughter be?
We last saw her beneath the chinaberry tree
by the banks of the Old Black River at a quarter past three.
So sheriff please drag, drag, drag that river.
Drag, drag, drag, drag that river deep.

Where, oh, where, oh where has my handsome husband gone?
I fear some foul deed; I fear some dreadful wrong.
For he has been away far too long.
So sheriff please drag, drag, drag that river.
Drag, drag, drag, drag that river deep.

Where, oh where, oh where can your precious loved ones be?
In my gut now they lie beneath waters cold and deep.
For I am the river, and on souls I feed.
So sheriff please drag, drag, drag that river.
Drag, drag, drag, drag that river deep.
