If The Good Lord’s Willing and The Creek Don’t Rise

There’s nothing better for a writer than to have a little musical fortification. It feeds the mind and enriches the soul. Here’s some Americana from the man in black – the mighty Johnny Cash.

If the good Lord’s willing and the creek stays down
I’ll be in your arms time the moon come around
For a taste of love that’s shining in your eyes
If the rooster crows at the crackin’ of the dawn
I’ll be there just as sure as you’re born
If the good Lord’s willing and the creeks don’t rise
I’ll comb my hair down brush my teeth
Shine up slick up dress up neat
Get everything looking just right
Cause I want to look pretty when I see you tonight
Just as sure as the rabbits are a jumping in the hollow
I’ll be there you can bet your bottom dollar
If the good Lord’s willing and the creeks don’t rise

If the good Lord’s willing and the creek stays low
I’ll be there a knockin’ at your door
With a hug and a kiss for the one I idolize
I’ll wear my suit my Sunday best I’ll be there lookin’ my best
If the good Lord’s willing and the creeks don’t rise
I’ll feed the mules and slop the hogs feed the cows and chop all the logs
Get all of my working done cause tonight we’re gonna have lots of fun
Just as sure as there ever was a preacher man
I’ll be there with a ring for your hand
If the good Lord’s willing and the creek don’t rise.
