Peter, Paul And Mary - Bamboo Lyrics




You take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you throw it in the water,
Oh, oh, Hanaah.

You take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you throw it in the water,
Oh, oh, Hanaah.

River, she come down.
River, she come down.

You travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the water,
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

You travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the river,
you travel on the water,
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

River, she come down.
River, she come down.

My home's across the river,
my home's across the river.
My home's across the river,
my home's across the water.
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

My home's across the river,
my home's across the river.
My home's across the river,
my home's across the water.
Oh, Oh, Hanaah.

River, she come down.
River, she come down.
You take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you take a stick of bamboo,
you throw it in the water.

Peter, Paul And Mary Bamboo Comments
  1. anne vogle

    I was born with their songs floating around our rather dysfunctional home.as a very young child of perhaps three I remember thinking that Mary Travers. Peter And Paul. Had to be my actual parents..as an aging baby boomer the memorie of that thought still makes me smile..

  2. Robin Lynn Griffith

    This is my favorite song well actually that's not true the whole album is my favorite song I think my mom got it for me when I was three years old I could tell you every Nuance to every scratch on the whole album as in vinyl thank you so much for the Memories

  3. Stacey B

    Took 32 yrs to realize they are not saying bumble.... smh.

  4. Debra Aponte

    My Mom bought this record when I was a kid , and we played it over and over . P, P & M were part of the soundtrack of my childhood . They are special to me.

    Dim Bulb

    For me it was their best of album, for the song "Puff the Magic Dragon." I began playing some of my dad's albums and eventually started listening to The Kingston Trio as well. Then I heard my cousin's Ted Nugent records and left folk behind.

  5. gilliangirl1

    This was my fav song when I was 5. I'm 59 now and I still love it.

    HD Warrior

    Me too! I'm 50, but I remember falling asleep to this song and I always loved the way it transported me. Never get tired of it. My mother had all their music, and I have lost her very recently. So now the music breaks my heart a little bit.

    Robin Lynn Griffith

  10. Noel st.clair

  11. Brian Clark

    i really wish kanye west would cover this!

    anne vogle

    I hope you are kidding. My impression is he has no concept of folk music.its only about money for most so called musicians today.not the messege

  12. Glorified Truth

    I can't remember, it was the kind that fades pretty soon. Most likely I was hearing an alternative version of the song, one that sounds nothing like this one... maybe kind of distorted or something like that. That would be a typical song-dream for me.

  13. Dan Upshaw

    What happened in the dream?

  14. Glorified Truth

    I had a dream about this song last night!

    G.C. Lawrence

    I hope it didn't make you pee.
