There ought to be a law:  live and let live

There ought to be somebody for what you’re born to give

And there ought to be something we could cover her with

More than the muddy water

More than the muddy water

It took time to find out what she could bear

It took sticks and sandbars to braid her hair

Hey what did it take, boys, to carry her there

More than the muddy water

More than the muddy water

She had a 20-year watch around her wrist

Little lariat cowboys on her dancing dress

Hey what did you see, boys, could have made her like this

More than the muddy water

More than the muddy water
