[C]Sp[(E)]it into the center of your [G]ho[(B)]metown, there's l[D]ea[(F#)]ves in the street,
and there are friends [Dsus4(B)]around you[D(F#)] now. A[C]ll the days of your li[G]fe in a l[D]ine. [Dsus4] [D]
[C]or the way they [G]seemed by 89.[D]..[Dsus4] [D]
[C]But it's not all right.[G] It's not even c[D]lose to all right.[Dsus4] [D]
Down a [C]hall in your house, down a [G]road in December
Down, down, do[D]wn the deep river, down, down, down the deep [Dsus4]river[D]
Down a [C]hall in your house, down a [G]road in December
Down, down, do[D]wn the deep river, down, down, down the deep [Dsus4]river[D]
We lie a[C]wake at night in a te[G]nt and I say,
Tell me about your [D]uncle and his friend because they seem like [Dsus4]very b[D]ad m[C]en.
Well we [G]want to keep away from th[D]em. [Dsus4]
[D]Bend in the [C]road back there, we saw the p[G]lace they go.[D] [Dsus4] [D]
[C]Tell me about the greatest [G]show or the greatest m[D]ovie you know
or the greatest song that you [Dsus4]taped [D]from off the r[C]adio.
Play it again and [G]again it cuts off at the e[D]nding though. [Dsus4]
T[D]ell me I'm [C]always gonna be your best f[G]riend.
Now you said it one [D]time, why don't you say it again?
All the [Dsus4]way dow[D]n the l[C]ine to where the telephone [G]ends
come on and shout it on down the w[D]ire.[Dsus4] [D]
[C]And it's not all right.[G] It's not even c[D]lose to all right.[Dsus4] [D]
Down a [C]hall in your house, down a [G]road in December
Down, down, do[D]wn the deep river, down, down, down the deep [Dsus4]river[D]
Down a [C]hall in your house, down a [G]road in December
Down, down, do[D]wn the deep river, down, down, down the deep [Dsus4]river[D]
And as the [C]rescue party, the v[G]olunteer team, oh (shit),
they're just k[D]ids of eighteen, and it's the worst thing
they've [Dsus4]seen t[D]hey're standing all ar[C]ound that tree,
and I'm so [G]sorry that I can't stop cr[D]ying.[Dsus4] [D]
C G D Dsus4 D x2
[C]Shivering from the late fall c[G]old,
I felt like a s[D]olid ghost.
I ran and then I couldn't slow[C].
My father f[G]ound me though, my father t[D]ook me home.
[Dsus4]He said[D], oh, s[C]on, I saw you get knocked do[G]wn,
and I ran [D]out I bet your head was spinning.
when you[G]'ve only just begun to be only [D]just beginning. [Dsus4]
T[D]ossed in the [C]viper pit, all those [G]feelings and fears,
and all that di[D]fficult shit in all those tender [Dsus4]years. [D]
There was [C]something in the air; something [G]gathered in the air.
Something [D]singing in the wind.
[Dsus4]I'll b[D]e your [C]fighter and you'll be my m[G]irror.
And you'll be all r[D]ight because I'll be right here.
[Dsus4]Oh kid[D], now I'm not [C]going anywhere.
I s[G]wear I'll try to not be going a[D]nywhere.[Dsus4] [D]
[C]Though it's not all [G]right. It is still far fro[D]m all right. [Dsus4]
[D]We'll make it into a c[C]hoice somehow.
I don't [G]know, but you'll have a c[D]hoice somehow.[Dsus4] [D]
Down a [C]hall in your house, down a [G]road in December
Down, down, do[D]wn the deep river, down, down, down the deep [Dsus4]river[D]
We can [C]never go back; we can only [G]remember
Down, down, do[D]wn the deep river, down, down, down the deep [Dsus4]river[D]
**YouTube Version**
Waking in the d[C]awn with that dream growing di[G]mmer and dimmer.
Down, down, do[D]wn the deep river, down, down, down the deep [Dsus4]river[D]
Are we going [C]down, Are we going down, Are we going [G]down, Are we going down, Are we going [D]down?
I wanna know[Dsus4], are [D]we going [C]down the deep river, are we going d[G]own? Because I know it's sc[D]ary[Dsus4], baby[D].
Intro chords/riff 1 1/2 times.
End on D (F#)
**Album Version**
Intro chords/riff
Maybe they told you 'bout the summer sky,
maybe they said there's a great gold spirit in the summer sky
or all your friends, all your best, best friends
are gonna gather around your bed at night.
Well that'll make it all right because it is still so far from all right. Oh, kid, I know.
Down a hall in your house, down a road in December
Down, down, down the deep river, down, down, down the deep river
Up the stairs four flights, son; can you feel my heart shiver?
Down, down, down the deep river, down, down, down the deep river
Waking in the dawn with that dream getting dimmer and dimmer.
I said, Are we going down the deep river? Down the deep river?
Why don't you say you still see it, say you remember? Are we going down?
Are we going down the deep river? Because I know it's scary, baby.
End on
[D] [(F#)]
