"Down To The River"
by:  Pat Green and Kirk Zander
Album:  Dancehall Dreamer & Here We Go - The Live Album

Capo:  3rd Fret

G (mute)
Take me down to the river

 	  	  	  	      D
Where I can hold your body close to mine

 	 C 	  	 D
We'd listen to the rhythm

      C 	  	      D
Of that old water rollin

 	     C 	  	     D 	  	   G
You can stay with me until the morning light

G
I found you in a Louisiana roadside park

 	  	  	  	  	 D
Beat up, broke down no place left to turn

   C 	  	        D 	       C     D
I took you back to Texas under a harvest moon

       C 	  	     D        G
We found a little place to call our own

G
We shared all the hopes and dreams of our younger years

 	  	  	  	      D
Married at the tender age of twenty-one

C 	  	      D 	          C 	  	   D 	 
Rollin' down the highways, dirt roads and the byways

C 	  	  	     D 	  	 G
Would you like to drive so I would go shotgun


CHORUS

G
We'd go down to the river

 	  	  	  	  	  D
Where I could hold your body close to mine

 	 C 	       D 	 
We'd listen to the rhythm

      C 	  	      D
Of that old water rollin

 	    C 	  	     D 	  	 G 	 
You can stay with me until the morning light

G
Somewhere through the year somebody turned your head

 	  	  	  	  	  D 	 
And has taken my sweet love so far from me

 	     C 	  	  	 D
Yeah he swept you off to Boulder

 	       C 	  	  	 D 	 
Where the air it gets much colder

 	  	 C 	  	  D 	     G 	 
Than this southern boy would ever like to see

G
I think of calling you on lonely nights

 	  	  	  	   D 	 
When being alone gets the best of me

 	     C 	  	  	 D
Yeah but this here whiskey bottle

        C           D 	   	 
Will take me to a place

C 	  	  D 	     G
Where you and I will always be


CHORUS

 	  A 	 
When you came back home everybody said I was a fool 
                                                              
                                                              E 	 
'Cause I took you back without a word to say

       D 	  	  	 E 	  	 D 	  	 E
But I couldn't go on living thinkin' about all I was missin'

 	 D 	  	  	    E 	            A
And I donŐt give a damn about what those people say.


CHORUS

 	      A 	 
We'd go down to the river

                                                             E
Where I could hold your body close to mine

 	 D 	       E 	 
We'd listen to the rhythm

      D 	  	      E
Of that old water rollin

 	    D 	  	     E 	  	      A 	 
You can stay with me until the morning light

 	 A
I wanna go down to the river

 	    A 	 
Take me down to the river

 	 A 	 
I wanna go down to the river
