Emmy Lou

Cruisin’ the Murray, out of Olde Echuca Town
Is a riverboat of renown, jewel in Echuca’s crown.
Pride of both the River, and her crew:
Dip yer hats, lads ‘n’ ladies, to “Emmy Lou”

The sound of her paddle wheels splashin’,
Boiler blazin’, smokin’, it’s real old fashion'!
People linin’ the rails, their hearts fair a-thrill,
Experiencin’ an age long past, yet with us still.
