Hoagy Carmichael, Lazy River. I scratched my long arm something fierce reaching back into the musty mausoleum for this moldy oldy.
Hank Williams, Lost on the River
Leon Redbone, Mississippi River Blues
J. J. Cale, Mississippi River

Update 9/7: Jeff Hodges recommends Robbie Robertson, Somewhere Down the Crazy River. Tom Coleman wonders why I didn't include Joe Cocker, Cry Me a River. Reason: I don't like it all that much. The same goes for Ike and Tina Turner, River Deep, Mountain High.
