lyrics

If the river was whiskey and I was a duck,
I'd dive to the bottom and I'd never come up
Tell me how long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now or must I hesitate?

If the river was whiskey and the branch was wine
you'd see me in my bathing suit any old time
Tell me how long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now or must I hesitate?

'Cuz I've been down so long it seems like up to me
I've been down so long it seems like up to me
That girl I love, she just quit on me
She said

Won't you keep my skillet greasy when I'm gone gone gone
Won't you keep my skillet greasy when I'm gone
When I'm gone
When I'm gone

عالمايا عالمايا
عالعين يا ملايا
يا بنية بالله اسقيني
عطشان اسقيني مايا

عالمايا عالمايا
عالعين يا ملايا
يا بنية بالله اسقيني
عطشان اسقيني مايا

I ain't the doctor, I'm the doctor's son
but I can do the doctorin' til the doctor comes
Tell me how long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now or must I hesitate?

I've got hesitation stockings, I've got hesitation shoes
and oh my lord I've got the hesitation blues
Tell me how long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now or must I hesitate?

I was born in Alabama, I was raised in Tennessee
if you don't like my peaches don't shake my tree
Tell me how long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now or must I hesitate?

If the river was whiskey and I was a duck,
I'd dive to the bottom and I'd never come up
Tell me how long do I have to wait?
Can I get you now or must I hesitate?
