Left my heart in a wishing well
Left Ochklocknee bound
Ain't no prayer
Ain't no will
Turn this boy around
Got me there an old Jon boat
rusty as a nail
Gonna find her
and put out for a spell

Left that girl sound a sleepin'
Left Ochlockonee bound
Ain't no note
Ain't no reason
ever gonna be found
Oh, by now she's probably waking
wondering where I am
She don't know, but I'm
Ochlockonee bound

Ochlockonee take me off my feet
O my soul in disbelief
Take me where you lead

Daddy had that old, brown picture
of an old riverboat
He said it was just the kind
his Daddy's Daddy rode
I could make my way to the Mississippi
put out from Cairo town
But I hear a call Lord, I'm Ochklockonee bound

Take me down far as able
Take me Ochlockonee down
I'm a trick
I'm a traitor
with a heap of guilt to drown
Momma said "All God's children
are jewels in heaven's crown."
I just don't know... Momma I'm
gonna find out
