River Fever

This song is by Joe Ely and appears on the album Happy Songs From Rattlesnake Gulch (2007).

Didn't I see you last night down at Antones
With some silver tongued bull rider from La Grange
Later that night weren't you down at the Continental
Swinging from the chandeliers and actin' strange

Baby you got it bad
Like everyone I know
Baby you've got it bad
And you don't want to let it go

I got a line on you, you got the River Fever
Like a bumblebee buzzin' round a honey comb
I got a line on you, you got the River Fever
Too late to skate too early to head for home

You sure looked fine in the beer sign light, baby
Scootin' your boots up and down the Broken Spoke
You shined on me like moonlight on a river
I wanted to talk but the words stuck in my throat

Oh Baby you got it bad
Like everyone I know
Baby you've got it bad
And you don't want to let it go

I got a line on you, you got the River Fever
Like a bumblebee buzzin' round a honey comb
I got a line on you, you got the River Fever
Too late to skate too early to head for home

Don't they say that nightlife makes you crazy
The same ones that say that sex will make you blind
Don't they see the good times make you lazy
When the music plays, the moon will blow your mind

Baby you got it bad
Like everyone I know
Baby you've got it bad
And you don't want to let it go

I got a line on you, you got the River Fever
Like a bumblebee buzzin' round a honey comb
I got a line on you, you got the River Fever
Too late to skate too early to head for home

The Shakes and chills, it's just the River Fever
