Chris Knight - Backwater Blues
The Trailer Tapes
Intro: E E E E
Verse 1
[E]Where the hell's th[A]e sun, just rai[E]n for days
All this [A]river risin and [B7]cryin washin us [E]away
If we let go [A]now, [B7]we'll let our love [E]drown[A]
Baby this [E]cold blue river, [B7]might never go [E]down
Verse 2
So put up your bags and get away from the door
Put up that rusty pistol baby, i aint mad anymore
If you leave me now and head for higher ground
Baby this river of blue backwater is gonna take me down
Baby [A]I cant let you [B7]go
I'll go [E]under if you leave me here [A]alone
These [E]backwater blues will be [B7]gone
If we hold [E]on[B7]
Baby just [A]let these hard times [B7]roll
We'll [E]wade outta here when the [A]water is low
These [E]backwater blues will be [B7]gone
If we hold [E]on
[E] [A] [B7] [E] [A] [E] [B7] [E]  
Verse 3
This river aint deep, its just a little cold
So put your arms around me we'll find us a steppin stone
Baby hold on tight, cos dry land's in sight
We'll be out of these backwater blues before long
If we hold on
Baby these backwater blues will be gone
If we hold on...
