♫ Creedence Clearwater Revival – Proud Mary

❝ Big wheel keep on turnin’,
Proud Mary keep on burnin’,
Rollin’, rollin’, rollin’ on the river. ❞

♫ J.J Cale – Riverboat Song

❝ Yeah, that river boat whistle blows
I know she’s getting near
River captain, bring my baby home ❞

♫ Lazy Harry – A Nautical Yarn

❝ I sing of a capting not unknown to fame;
A naval commander, Bill Jinks was his name,
Who sailed where the Murray’s clear waters do flow,
Did this freshwater shellback, with his Yeo heave a yeo. ❞
