Chorus
Oh, Neches River 
Take me home, take me home 
Oh, muddy waters 
Baptize my soul 
Take me home

Verse 1
The click and the clack of the railroad track 
Brings the memories back of the Santa Fe freight line racing by 
Bring me back where the gold is black 
with the glow from the refinery smoke stack in a sulfur sky 

Pre-Chorus 
Where e'er I roam 
Neches River bring me home 

Chorus 
Oh, Neches River 
Take me home, take me home 
Oh, muddy waters 
Baptize my soul 
Take me home

Verse 2 
I long for the brown, tar-filled Gulf shores 
And the downtown clock that runs no more from the hurricane 

Pre-Chorus 
Where e'er I roam 
Neches River bring me home 

Chorus 
Oh, Neches River 
Take me home, take me home 
Oh, muddy waters 
Baptize my soul 
Take me home
