Drowning Man  Arlo Guthrie

Drowning Man
words and music by Arlo Guthrie
Intro: G Em
I re[C]member when I [G]met you
Under[Em]neat[C]h the evening [G]sky
Now it [Am]seem[Am/B]s I could for[C]get you
Rescue [D]me, I'm bound to [Em]die
All the [C]promises we [G]made there
With no [Em]word[C]s to under[G]stand
And though I've [Am]trie[Am/B]d I've come up [C]empty
Heart of [D]stone, drowning [Em]man
I'm going [C]down for the [G]third time
And I [Em]need[C] a helping [G]hand
The rooster [Am]crow[Am/B]s and I'm [C]sinking
Heart of [D]stone, drowning [Em]man
Where are you, my dear companion
How much longer must you be
I'm all alone out on the ocean
When will you come and rescue me
It's too late for new beginnings
In this world I've left behind
There is nothing left worth keeping
Not a thing to change my mind
How far down the road to glory
Must we go without a sign
Caught out on these stormy waters
How can you treat me so unkind
Did you know from the beginning
That I'd dig this lousy hole
Oh, don't leave me here abandoned
In this dark night of the soul
