Down to the River  Pat Green

Capo: 3rd Fret
G (mute)
Take me down to the river
Where I can hold your body close to m[D]ine
We'd lis[C]ten to the rhyth[D]m
Of tha[C]t old water rol[D]lin
You can stay[C] with me until t[D]he morning lig[G]ht
[G]I found you in a Louisiana roadside park
Beat up, broke down no place left to tur[D]n
I t[C]ook you back to Texa[D]s under a harve[C]st moo[D]n
We foun[C]d a little place to c[D]all our o[G]wn
[G]We shared all the hopes and dreams of our younger years
Married at the tender age of twenty-o[D]ne
[C]Rollin' down the high[D]ways, dirt r[C]oads and the bywa[D]ys
[C]Would you like to drive so I[D] would go sh[G]otgun
[G]We'd go down to the river
Where I could hold your body close to min[D]e
We'd lis[C]ten to the rhy[D]thm
Of tha[C]t old water rol[D]lin
You can sta[C]y with me until t[D]he morning l[G]ight
[G]Somewhere through the year somebody turned your head
And has taken my sweet love so far from m[D]e
Yeah he swep[C]t you off to Boulder[D]
Where the air [C]it gets much colde[D]r
Than this southe[C]rn boy would ever[D] like to se[G]e
[G]I think of calling you on lonely nights
When being alone gets the best of [D]me
Yeah but thi[C]s here whiskey bottl[D]e
Will tak[C]e me to a pl[D]ace
[C]Where you and I w[D]ill always [G]be
When you [A]came back home everybody said I was a fool
'Cause I took you back without a word to say[E]
But I c[D]ouldn't go on living thin[E]kin' about all I[D] was missin'[E]
And I do[D]nŐt give a damn about what [E]those people say[A].
We'd go down [A]to the river
Where I could hold your body close to mine[E]
We'd lis[D]ten to the rhy[E]thm
Of tha[D]t old water rol[E]lin
You can sta[D]y with me until t[E]he morning light[A]
I wanna [A]go down to the river
Take me dow[A]n to the river
I wanna [A]go down to the river
[A-E-D] [A-E-D]
