K:C Way [C]down on the levee, in old Alabamy, There's [F]daddy and mammy, there's Ephriam and Sammy, On a [C]moon light [G]night you can [F]find them [C]all, [D7]While they are waitin' the [G]banjos are syncopatin'. [C]What's that they're sayin? What's that they're sayin? [F]While they keep playin', hummin' and swayin', It's the [C]good [G]ship [F]Robert E. Lee [C] That's [D7]come to carry [G7]the cotton a-[C]way. {i}Chorus:{/i} {i}[F]Watch them shufflin' a long, [C]See them shufflin' a long,{/i} {i}Go take your best gal real pal, Go [F]down to the levee,{/i} {i}I said to the levee, and join that shufflin' throng.{/i} {i}[C]Hear that music and song. It's simply great, mate,{/i} {i}Watin' on the levee, Waitin' for the Robert E. [F]Lee.{/i} The [C]whistles are blowin', the smokestacks are showin' The [F]ropes they are throwin' excuse me, I'm goin' To the [C]place [G]where [F]all is harmon-[C]ious, [D7]Even the preacher, [G]he is the dancing teacher. [C]Have you been down there? Were you around there? If [F]you ever go there, you'll always be found there, Why [C]dog [G]gone, [F]here comes my ba-[C]by. On the [D7]good old [G7]Robert E. [C]Lee. {i}Chorus{/i}
