                Down By The River            (Albert Hammond - 1972)


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                                  
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
Hm                        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
Hm                      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
Hm                       Em                                 
The banks will soon be black and dead
 A           D                                              
Down by the river
