Davy Crockett and the River Pirates


New Member
I'm trying to track down a recording of the Mike Fink "king of the river" song.

Any help would be appreciated.

"Listen to the thunder here the winds roar,
Hurricane's a'comin' board up the door.
Load up the canon call out the law,
Worstest calamity that folks ever saw.
Girls run and hide big men shiver,
He's Mike Fink King of the River.

Oh, he's a ring-tail roarer and a tough old alligator,
Oh, he's a bull-nosed bully and a real depopulator.
Oh, what a fighten devil he'll spit right in your eye,
He's gonna live forever born too mean to die!"
