Lyrics

The French Broad River runs long and deep down from the black mountain snow
And every time that I get down hearted that’s where my mind will go
Just a running deep and slow like I’m rocking away in your loving arms
You can sweet-talk me when you do your duty, but please don’t you do no harm

Lafayette, don’t ya make me beg
S’il vous plais, I’ll be your rocking chair, I’ll be your guitar – play me
Baby, let me follow you down to the river and drink

Well, I have been all around the world from Amsterdam to Asheville
But I never thought that I’d give up my freedom ’til I got tied up in the Delta
I said no to the devil, but he paid no mind, Hallelujah, honey, you’re the loving kind
If I had my way I’d keep your angel wings wrapped down around my thigh

Lafayette, don’t ya make me beg
S’il vous plais, I’ll be your ro cking chair, I’ll be your guitar – play me
Baby, let me follow you down to the river and drink
Baby, let me follow you down to the river and drink

Lafayette, don’t ya make me beg
S’il vous plais, I’ll be your hand me down, I’ll be your blue jean baby

Oh, Lafayette, don’t ya go just yet
I’ll be your Juliette, c’mon let’s stop talking
