(To go along with the piano a bit, i've added in the G1 & Em1 chords. It's just used
between chord changes to make it sound authentic, but if you're just wanting to keep it

Verse:

G                             Em7 (G1)
Anywhere you go, anyone you meet,
G                                      Em7 (G1)
Remember that your eyes can be your enemies,
       G                                    Em7 (Em1)
I said hell is so close, and heavens out of reach,
   Cadd9
but i ain't giving up quite yet,
     D/F
i've got too much to lose,


Chorus:

Em7                     Cadd9  G       D/F
hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Em7                     Cadd9    D/F               G
hold me down, sweet and low and i will carry you home,
Em7                     Cadd9   G       D/F
hold me down, sweet and low little girl,
Em7         Cadd9   D/F  *build up-mute*
hold me down....                    ...and i'll carry you home.

*INTRO* - Em7, Cadd9, G, D/F  (x2)

Verse:

G                                        Em7  (G1)
the rain is gonna fall, the sun is gonna shine,
G                                        Em7  (G1)
the wind is gonna blow, the waters gonna rise,
          G                                Em7 (Em1)
she said, when that day comes look into my eyes,
    Cadd9                       D/F
but no ones giving up quite yet, we've got too much to lose,


Chorus:


Em7                     Cadd9  G       D/F
hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Em7                     Cadd9    D/F              G
hold me down, sweet and low and i will carry you home,
Em7                     Cadd9   G       D/F
hold me down, sweet and low little girl,
Em7         Cadd9   D/F  *build up-mute*
