Just to Ferry Me Over

By Will Scott (BMI) and Scrote (Teddy Spunko Music, BMI) © 2011

 

This river is deep but it’s not wide

Just to ferry me over

I ain’t ready for the other side

Just to bear across

 

Michael don’t row this boat of mine

Just to ferry me over

Go on ahead and leave me behind

Just to bear across

 

Momma tell me what’s this body for

Just to ferry me over

Suffer and cry and then cast ashore

Just to bear across

 

The jury it says I have to go

Just to ferry me over

What might have been I’ll never know

Just to bear across

 

I’ll miss my momma’s long brown hair

Just to ferry me over

They won’t have nothing like it there

Just to bear across

 

Bury my body for none to find

Just to ferry me over

I won’t be there and I won’t mind

Just to bear across

 

Momma tell me what’s this body for

Just to ferry me over

I ain’t worth nothing more

Just to bear across
