Intro: E E E E

Verse 1

E                  A              E 
Where the hell's the sun, just rain for days
         A               B7              E
All this river risin and cryin washin us away
             A    B7                 E     A            
If we let go now, we'll let our love drown
          E                B7             E
Baby this cold blue river, might never go down

Verse 2

So put up your bags and get away from the door
Put up that rusty pistol baby, i aint mad anymore
If you leave me now and head for higher ground
Baby this river of blue backwater is gonna take me down


     A              B7
Baby I cant let you go
        E                          A 
I'll go under if you leave me here alone
      E                       B7
These backwater blues will be gone
           E    B7
If we hold on
          A                    B7
Baby just let these hard times roll
      E                        A
We'll wade outta here when the water is low
      E                       B7
These backwater blues will be gone 
If we hold on

E A B7 E A E B7 E

Verse 3

This river aint deep, its just a little cold
So put your arms around me we'll find us a steppin stone
Baby hold on tight, cos dry land's in sight
We'll be out of these backwater blues before long
If we hold on


Baby these backwater blues will be gone
If we hold on...
