                [Intro]
E7
  Sock it to me

[Verse 1]
E7
Floatin' down the river with a saturated liver and I wish I could forgive her
E7
But I do believe she meant it when she told me to forget it and I bet she will regret it
E7                                                                  A    C
When they find me in the morning wet and drowned and the word gets 'round

[Chorus]
N.C.      E7
Goin' down. Goin' down

[Verse 2]
E7
Comin' up for air, it's pretty stuffy under there there, I'd like to say I didn't care
E7
But I forgot to leave a note and it's so hard to stay afloat, I'm soakin' wet without a boat
E7                                                           A   C
And I knew I should have taken off my shoes, it's front page news
N.C.      E7
Goin' down. Goin' down

[Instrumental]
E7
  Hey-hey. Hey-hey
                     A           C       E7
Hey-hey, hey-hey, hey, hey, hey, hey, hey

[Verse 3]
E7
I wish I had another drink, it wouldn't be so hard to sink. I should have taken time to think
E7
Besides I got the picture straight, she must have had another date. I didn't need this extra weight
E7                                                        A   C
I wish that I could see the way to shore. I don't want no more

[Chorus]
N.C.      E7
Goin' down, I'm goin' down

[Verse 4]
E7
And now I see the life I led. I slept it all away in bed. I should have learned how to swim instead
E7
And now it's really got me stumped. I can't believe I really jumped. I'd like to get my tummy pumped
E7                                                        A    C
I can't believe they drink this stuff in town, this dirty brown

[Chorus]
N.C.      E7
Goin' down, goin' down. I'm goin' down
      C#m                 E7          C#m          E7
Goin' down, hey, hey. I'm down. Goin' down.  Goin' down
      C#m          E7          C#m
Goin' down.  Goin' down. Goin' down

[Bridge]
  E7                                   C#m
I wished I'd looked before I leaped. I didn't know it was so deep
     E7                             C#m
Been down so far I don't get wet. I haven't touched the bottom yet
     E7                              C#m
This river scene is gettin' old. I'm hungry, sleepy, wet and cold
    E7                           C#m
She told me to forget it nice. I should have taken her advice
  E7                           C#m
I only want to go on home. I'd gladly leave that girl alone
E7                               C#m
What a way to spend the night, if I don't drown, I'll die of fright
   E7                               C#m
My pappy taught me how to float, but I can't swim a single note
   E7                             C#m
He threw me in to teach me how. I stayed there floatin' like a mama cow
    E7                               C#m
And now I've floated way downstream, know this has to be a dream
   E7                                C#m
If I could find my way to shore. I'd never, never do this anymore
     E7                                       C#m
I'll give you three, I've been down nine. I'm goin' down just one more time

[Chorus]
      E7          C#m          E7          C#m
Goin' down. Goin' down.  Goin' down. Goin' down
          E7                            C#m
I'm goin' down, back, back, back, goin' down, back, back, back
E7                         C#m
  Back, back, back, back,  back back, back, back
E7      C#m         E7              C#m
  Goin' down. Goin' down. I'm goin' down

[Bridge]
               E7                    C#m
I'm goin' back home, back home to my friends
               E7                          C#m
Back under the warm, and I can do with it, too

[Instrumental]
          E7 C#m E7 C#m
I'm goin' home

[Bridge]
E7                                C#m
Now the sky is gettin' light, and everythng will be all right
E7                                  C#m
Think I finally got the knack, just floatin' here lazy on my back
  E7                              C#m
I never really liked that town. I think I'll ride the river down
E7                                            C#m
Just movin' slow and floatin' free, there's a river swinging under me
E7                               C#m
Waving back to the folks on shore.  I should have thought of this before
    E7                                   C#m
I'm floatin' on down to New Orleans, and pick up on some swingin' scenes
E7                                 C#m
  I'm gonna know a better day. I'm goin' down groovin' all the way

[Outro]
      E7                 C#m
Goin' down. Go-go-go-in' down
          E7                                C#m
I'm goin' down, back, back, back. I'm goin' back, back, back home
E7             C#m                                E7
  I'm go-goin' down, hey, hey, hey, hey. Goin' on down, hey, hey, hey, hey
              E7              C#m
Go, go, goin' down. I'm goin' down
      E7          C#m
Goin' down, go, go...
