Red River Blues

This song is by Lil Son Jackson and appears on the album Lil Son Jackson (1960) and on the compilation Blues Roots (1969).

Winnie got drownded in Red River deep
Winnie got drownded in Red River deep
She got drownded, swimmin' after me

Tried to save her, tried to reach her hand
Tried to save her, tried to reach her hand
Water was ragin', out of my command

Night was freezin', water run chilly and cold
Night was freezin', the water run chilly and cold
I couldn't save her body, may God save her soul
