Lord williní and the creek donít rise
Weíll all be rockiní on the riverside
Címon, Katie, shake them trees
Stick in your toes, wiggle your knees
Meet me on the water by the highway bridge
T-shirts swingin' from a white oak limb

Lord, do me like a diviní duck
Straight to the bottom of a whiskey jug
Ooh, baby, oohwee
I know a place we could do as we please
Itís only half a mile as the old crow flies
Good Lord williní and the creek donít rise

Lord williní and the creek donít rise
Weíll all be rocking on the riverside
Címon, Katie, shake them trees
Stick in your toes, and wiggle your knees
Itís only half a mile as the old crow flies
Good Lord williní and the creek donít rise

Oh, jack-knife Katie, strut your stuff
Swan-dive down from a Tennessee bluff
Come on in the water, tickle and squeeze
Mr. Copperhead has got nothiní on me

Lord williní, and the creek donít rise
Weíll all be haviní a party tonight
Címon, Katie, it ainít no sin
Peel off your party dress, dive on in
Itís only half a mile as the old crow flies
Good Lord williní and the creek donít rise

Jack-knife Katie, everybodyís high
There ainít no way to keep your powder dry
Sing like a coach trip, rattle and shake
Heaven help us if the levees break

Lord, do me like a diviní duck
Straight to the bottom of a whiskey jug
Címon, Katie, it ainít no sin
Peel off your party dress, dive on in
Itís only half a mile as the old crow flies
Good Lord williní and the creek donít rise

Lord williní and the creek donít rise
Weíll all be rockiní on the riverside
Címon, Katie, shake them trees
Stick in your toes, and wiggle your knees
Itís only half a mile as the old crow flies
Good Lord williní and the creek donít rise
We'll have a little party tonight
Good Lord williní and the creek donít rise
Good Lord williní and the creek donít rise

Alright, I updated the lyrics. That's about as far as I can take them, using this video.
Maybe someone else can help with the spots that I'm not sure on.

With those lyrics it's no wonder Katie was getting down.

Thanks for the help, GumboStu.

A big mystery remains - what's she singing like?

I think Stu is correct with "coach trip". There's a fair amount of rattling and shaking to be done in a steel-springed conveyance. I don't think it's coach whip.
I also believe that one starts "jack knife" as well.
consulting fee - one dollar.

I'll have to say yes. I see 'em in the water multiple times every year. It may not be the preferred method of conveyance, but it's pretty practical. Very Happy Occasionally I get fooled by the common Northern Banded watersnake, they are pretty similar in looks. I prefer not to get too close to a swimming snake in my canoe...
