Verse 1
Well I was raised in muddy water with my back against the shed
It was swim or you die, drowned if you cry young man
On the banks of a river with a cane pole in my hand
That old hot summer sun make you sweat til you just jump in

Where you can hear that river calling
Those old fish just start to crawling
You know it couldn't get much hotter
I was raised in muddy water

Well the fish jump in the morning and the girls stay out all night
Look at that sweet Georgia Peach layed on the beach just right
And when the water gets to calling you just let your engine roar
Put on an old country song give your whiskey an endless poor

Chorus 2 (same)

Verse 3
Well when I grow to be a man with a family too I hope my kids grow up and feel just like I do..
o yeah I hope they feel it too
Cause when I look them in the eye im gonna tell them the truth, I'm gonna tell them that I grew up just like you.. o yeah
I hope they feel it too
...Muddy Water
