"The Whirl and The Suck"

It took a mighty good man with salty hands

And a mighty long raft to keep the fore before the act

You take ten good men and guts and luck

And you might navigate the whirl and the s_ck

Well the Tennessee River changed its mind at Chattanooga she oughta unwind

She could a run right on the Georgia Sea but she cut right back through Tennessee

Well the settlers come by raft and boat bringin' everything that could stay a float

But like a loco horse that'll twist and buck

They hardly ever made it through the whirl and the s_ck

It took a mighty good man...

[ banjo ]

When General Washington was in his knicker bocks

The Cherokee Indians through the Chattanooga Rocks

And the Chickamagua tribe and the Nickajack

They kept the watch where the river cut back

And if a raft or a boat ever rode the bend

The Indians got 'em cause they had 'em hemmed in

It took a mighty good man...
