Down By The River

Albert Hammond

 CF
 City life was gettin' us down
 GC
So we spent the weekend out of town
 AmDm
Pitched the tent on a patch of ground
 GC
 Down by the river
 CF
 Lit a fire and drank some wine
 GC
 You put your jeans on top of mine
 AmDm
 Said: come in, the water's fine
 GC
 Down by the river

 CF
 Down by the river
 GC
 Down by the river
 AmDm
 Said: come in, the water's fine
 GC
 Down by the river

 CF
 Didn't feel too good all night
 GC
 So we took a walk in the mornin' light
 AmDm
 We came across the strangest sight
 GC
Down by the river
 CF
 Silver fish lay on it's side
 GC
It was washed up by the early tide
 AmDm
I wonder how it died
 GC
 Down by the river

 CF
 Down by the river
 GC
 Down by the river
 AmDm
 Silver fish lay on it's side
 GC
 Down by the river

 CF
 Doctor put us both to bed
 GC
 He dosed us up and he shook his head
 AmDm
Only foolish people go, he said
 GC
 Down by the river
 CF
 Why do willows weep said he
 GC
 Because they're dying gradually
 AmDm
 >From the waste from the factories
 GC
 Down by the river

 CF
 Down by the river
 GC
 Down by the river
 AmDm
 Why do willows weep said he
 GC
 Down by the river

 DG
 In time the river banks will die
 AD
 The reeds will wilt and the ducks won't fly
 BmEm
 There'll be a tear in the otter's eye
 AD
 Down by the river
 DG
The banks will soon be black and dead
 AD
 And where the otter's raised his head
 BmEm
 Will be a clean white stone instead
 AD
 Down by the river

 DG
 Down by the river
 AD
 Down by the river
 BmEm
 The banks will soon be black and dead
 AD
Down by the river
