"'Riverboat Shuffle'" is a popular song composed by Hoagy Carmichael, Irving Mills, and Dick Voynow. Lyrics were later added by Carmichael and Mitchell Parish.

First recorded by Bix Beiderbecke and The Wolverines in 1924, the piece was Carmichael's first composition and it would become a Dixieland standard. Carmichael would go on to write many popular jazz standards, including "Stardust" (1927), "Georgia on My Mind" (1930), and "Lazy River" (1931).Vladimir Bogdanov, Chris Woodstra and Stephen Thomas Erlewine: 'All Music Guide to Jazz: The Definitive Guide to Jazz Music'.
