This track is one of the favorites off of the brand new FY5 album. It'll make you want to dance.


Written by Mike Finders

I have lived here on this river all my life.
I ain' no freshly fallen log.
And on this river I have seen some big sights.
And I've been shut down in some bogs.

I'm just an old piece of driftwood,
I'm floatin' down.
I might just stop around your town.
If I can just bob around these big barges in between
I might just make it down to New Orleans
I hope I make it down to New Orleans.

This old body, it's been sanded smooth
by all the grit I've been in.
This old body, it's been through the mill,
It's been through the damn dam.

In my time I have swum with some big fish.
Some of them tried to take me for a fool.
That's how I got all these little scars and dents
cracks, and grooves that make me so cool.

A busy beaver once tried to put me on a shelf,
cover me up with varnish and stain.
I just could not stay, I had to break away
back to that sweet river flow again.
