‎[1951]‎
Parole e musica di Woody Guthrie‎
Non credo che Woody Guthrie abbia mai inciso questa dolorosa canzone di prigionia.‎
Si trova invece in “Every 100 Years”, disco registrato dal vivo in Germania da Arlo ‎Guthrie con il cantautore tedesco Hans-‎Eckardt Wenzel

Parchman State Prison Farm, Mississippi. ‎La foto di Bill Steber è del 1997 ma potrebbe essere stata scattata anche 50 anni prima…‎
I doubt if I can write my right name down;
I been down this river too long;
I doubt if I can find your right house now;
I been down this river too long. ‎

I've been down this river mud too long;
Been down this river bank too long;
Chained on this prison farm too long;
Been down this river too long. ‎

I doubt if I can 'member your right name now;
I been down this river too long;
I doubt if I write you a post card home;
I been down this river too long. ‎

I've been down this river mud too long;
Been down this river bank too long;
Chained on this prison farm too long;
Been down this river too long. ‎

I don't know if you're livin' or dead;
I been down this river too long;
All I've got left is my achin' head;
I been down this river too long. ‎

I've been down this river mud too long;
Been down this river bank too long;
Chained on this prison farm too long;
Been down this river too long. ‎

I just about come to the end of my days;
I been down this river too long;
Rider boss wasted my life away;
I been down this river too long. ‎

I've been down this river mud too long;
Been down this river bank too long;
Chained on this prison farm too long;
Been down this river too long. ‎

I'm chained to a big iron ball for life;
I been down this river too long;
I cain't find you an' make y' my wife;
I been down this river too long. ‎

I've been down this river mud too long;
Been down this river bank too long;
Chained on this prison farm too long;
Been down this river too long. ‎
