The River
Bruce Springsteen
Tabbed by Steini

Intro: | Em | G | D | C | Am | G |

I [Em]come from down in the v[G]alley   Where m[D]ister, when you're y[C]oung
They br[Em]ing you up to d[G]o l[C]ike your daddy d[G]one
Me and M[C]ary we met in high school  When sh[G]e was just s[D]event[Em]een
We'd d[Am]rive out of this valley down to wh[G]ere the fields were gr[C]een
We'd go d[Em]own to the r[C]iver And [D]into the river we'd d[G]ive
Oh d[Em]own to the r[C]iver wed r[D]ide[C]
Then [Em]I got Mary pregnan[G]t  And m[D]an, that was all she wr[C]ote
And [Em]for my 19th b[G]irthday I got a union c[C]ard and a wedding c[G]oat
We w[C]ent down to the courthouse  And the j[G]udge put it [D]all to r[Em]est
No w[Am]edding day smiles, no walk down the aisle
No fl[G]owers, no wedding dr[C]ess
That night we went d[Em]own to the r[C]iver
And [D]into the river we'd d[G]ive
Oh d[Em]own to the r[C]iver we did r[D]ide [C]
Solo: | Em G D C | Em G
G |
| C C G D Em | Am
G C | C


I g[Em]ot a job working constr[G]uction for the J[D]ohnstown Company[C]
But l[Em]ately there ain't been m[G]uch work on acc[C]ount of the econom[G]y
Now [C]all them things that seemed so important
Well mister th[G]ey vanished right [D]into the air [Em]
Now I just [Am]act like I don't remember   Mary [G]acts like she don't c[C]are

But I rem[Em]ember us riding in my br[G]other's car   Her body t[D]an and wet down at
the r[C]eservoir    At n[Em]ight on them banks I'd l[G]ie awake
And pull her cl[C]ose just to feel each b[G]reath she'd take
Now those m[C]emories come back to haunt me
They h[G]aunt me l[D]ike a c[Em]urse
Is a dr[Am]eam a lie if it don't come true    Or [G]is it something w[C]orse
That sends me d[Em]own to the r[C]iver   Though I kn[D]ow the river is d[G]ry
That sends me d[Em]own to the r[C]iver ton[D]ight[C]
D[Em]own to the r[C]iver my b[D]aby and [G]I
Oh d[Em]own to the r[C]iver we r[D]ide[C]     Ooh..
