Black Water (song)

Black Water (song)

"Black Water" is a song by the American music group The Doobie Brothers for the album What Were Once Vices Are Now Habits. Released late in 1974, it features Patrick Simmons on lead vocals.

Introducing a bluegrass sound to traditional rock, "Black Water" hit #1 on the Billboard Hot 100 in March 1975. The song was originally released as the B-side to "Another Park, Another Sunday," but became the more popular song.

The song is characterized by the melodious a cappella section, with lyrics that are perhaps the most well-known in the entire song: "I'd like to hear some funky Dixieland/Pretty mama, come and take me by the hand."
