FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “River Stay ‘Way From My Door” (Flash Flood Edition)

FRIDAYS ARE FOR FRANK: “River Stay ‘Way From My Door” (Flash Flood Edition)

Frank Sinatra liked to yell at things.

In this track here, for example, he’s yelling at a river…

“You keep goin’ your way – I’ll keep goin’ my way (I’ll keep goin’ my way, you keep rollin’ your way)
River, stay ‘way from the door
I just got (me) a cabin – you don’t need my (you’ll never need that) cabin
River, stay ‘way from the door
Don’t (you) come up any higher – I’m so all alone
Leave the bed and the fire – that is all I own (- and you can have that phone)
I ain’t breakin’ your heart – don’t (you) start breakin’ my heart
River, stay ‘way from the door…”

With words and music by Harry Wood and Mort Dixon, “River Stay ‘Way From My Door” appeared on Frank Sinatra’s 1961 All The Way album, arranged by Nelson Riddle.

With heavy rains in the forecast, a lot of Hoboken might be singing this tune later tonight and into Saturday. A Flash Flood Watch is in effect until 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, as 1.5-2 inches of rain is expected to sweep through the area overnight.


Take whatever precautions you feel are necessary—even if that includes yelling at the rain…
