Down in the Valley  Otis Redding

...DOWN IN THE VALLEY... by Otis Redding

*from 'Otis Blue' (1965)*
(Original Key: Bb)
Verse 1:
Down in the valley,
The [G]valley, ha,
In the valley so [D]low,
Hang your hair over your shoulder,
And you can hear the four winds [G]blow.
[G] Now can't you hear,
The wind blow my love?
Can't you hear the wind [D]blow?
Wowowowow, ha, ha,
We're down in the valley, ha,
In the valley so [G]low, now, ha!
Verse 2:
[G] Now have you ever been lonely, lonely?
Now have you ever been [D]sad?
Did you ever really need someone, oh my,
Who really needed; Fa-fa-fa fa, [G]fa-fa-fa.
[G] Gotta, gotta, gotta, ha, too much,
Ooh yeah, help me baby,
[D] Gotta get the groove, so too [D]much, ooh yeah.
Verse 3:
[G] It was down in the valley,
In the valley so [D]low,
It was when I held you so tight,
How can I ever let you [G]go, go, go, go?
Now it was [G]down, down, down, down,
Down, down, down in the valley so [D]low,
When I held you so tight, now;
How can I ever let you [G]go, now?

[G] [D]
