When one of the producers, Daniel Lanois, was asked about the inspiration for "Somewhere Down the Crazy River", he said that the song was "kind of like a guy with a deep voice telling you about steaming nights in Arkansas ". He went on to Somewhere Down The Crazy River - Robbie Robertson - Robbie Robertson that Robertson was describing his experiences of hanging out in his old neighbourhood of Arkansas with Levon Helm fellow The Band member during hot nights in which they were "fishing with dynamite" and had asked a local for directions to "somewhere down the crazy river".
In terms of composition, the song features a "sweet and wonderful" chord sequence on the Suzuki Omnichordwhich had been introduced to Lanois by Brian Eno. As Robertson developed the chord sequence, Lanois surreptitiously recorded him and superimposed his storytelling on top.
The song was subject to mixed reviews by critics. Steve Spears of Tampa Bay Times called the song "sexy",  whereas Mark Deming of AllMusic wrote that Robertson was "exploring the same iconography of the Band's best work, but without the same grace or subtle wit".
