Down By The River

Albert Hammond

Tom: C
C                        F 
City life was gettin' us down 
 G                      C 
So we spent the weekend out of town 
 Am                         Dm 
Pitched the tent on a patch of ground 
 
G           C 
Down by the river 
C                          F 
Little fire and drank some wine 
G                         C 
You put your jeans on top of mine 
Am                         Dm 
Said: come in, the water's fine 
G            C 
Down by the river 
 
C             F 
Down by the river 
G           C 
Down by the river 
Am                 Dm 
Said: come in, the water's fine 
G            C  
Down by the river 
 
C                        F 
Didn't feel too good all night 
G                         C 
So we took a walk in the mornin' light 
Am                    Dm 
We came across the strangest side 
 G          C 
Down by the river 
C                       F 
Silver fish lay on it's side 
 G                     C 
It was washed up by the early tide 
 Am                 Dm 
I wonder how it died 
G            C 
Down by the river 
 
C           F 
Down by the river 
G            C 
Down by the river 
Am                  Dm 
Silver fish lay on it's side 
G            C 
Down by the river 
 
C                     F 
Doctor put us both to bed 
G                           C 
He dosed us up and he shook his head 
 Am                    Dm 
Only foolish people go, he said 
G            C 
Down by the river 
C                     F 
Why do willows weep said he 
G                       C 
Because they're dying gradually 
Am                     Dm 
From the waste from the factories 
G           C 
Down by the river 
 
C           F 
Down by the river 
G           C 
Down by the river 
Am                 Dm 
Why do willows weep said he 
G            C 
Down by the river 
                                                             
D                        G 
In time the river banks will die 
A                            D 
The region wilt and the dogs will fly 
Am                        Em 
There'll be a tear in the otter's eye 
A            D 
Down by the river 
D                            G 
The banks will soon be black and dead 
A                            D 
And where the otter's raised his head 
Am                      Em 
Will be a clean white stone instead 
A            D 
Down by the river 
 
D            G 
Down by the river 
A            D 
Down by the river 
Am                       Em 
The banks will soon be black and dead 
A            D 
Down by the river
