Down By The River

Song Author Albert Hammond Lyrics by: Albert Hammond Performer: Albert Hammond Submitted by: Anonymous
[C]City life was gettin' us [F]down
S[G]o we spent the weekend [C]out of town
P[Am]itched the tent on a patch [Dm]of ground
[G]Down by the [C]river

[C]Little fire and drank some [F]wine
[G]You put your jeans on top [C]of mine
[Am]Said: come in, the water's [Dm]fine   
[G]Down by the r[C]iver

[C]Down by the ri[F]ver  
[G]Down by the [C]river
[Am]Said: come in, the [Dm]water's fine
[G]Down by the r[C]iver

[C]Didn't feel too good all [F]night
[G]So we took a walk in the m[C]ornin' light
[Am]We came across the str[Dm]angest side
D[G]own by the [C]river

[C]Silver fish lay on it's [F]side
I[G]t was washed up by the[C] early tide
I[Am] wonder how it [Dm]died   
[G]Down by the r[C]iver

[C]Down by the [F]river
[G]Down by the r[C]iver
[Am]Silver fish lay on i[Dm]t's side
[G]Down by the r[C]iver

[C]Doctor put us both to [F]bed  
[G]He dosed us up and he shook [C]his head
O[Am]nly foolish people go,[Dm] he said
[G]Down by the r[C]iver

[C]Why do willows weep sa[F]id he
[G]Because they're dying gr[C]adually
[Am]>From the waste from the[Dm] factories
[G]Down by the [C]river

[C]Down by the [F]river
[G]Down by the [C]river
[Am]Why do willows weep[Dm] said he
[G]Down by the r[C]iver

[D]In time the river banks w[G]ill die
[A]The region wilt and the dogs [D]will fly
[Bm]There'll be a tear in the [Em]otter's eye
[A]Down by the r[D]iver

T[D]he banks will soon be black [G]and dead
[A]And where the otter's raised [D]his head
[Bm]Will be a clean white st[Em]one instead
[A]Down by the r[D]iver

[D]Down by the r[G]iver
[A]Down by the r[D]iver
[Bm]The banks will soon be bl[Em]ack and dead
D[A]own by the r[D]iver

City life was gettin' us down
So we spent the weekend out of town
Pitched the tent on a patch of ground
Down by the river

Little fire and drank some wine
You put your jeans on top of mine
Said: come in, the water's fine
Down by the river

Down by the river
Down by the river
Said: come in, the water's fine
Down by the river

Didn't feel too good all night
So we took a walk in the mornin' light
We came across the strangest side
Down by the river

Silver fish lay on it's side
It was washed up by the early tide
I wonder how it died
Down by the river

Down by the river
Down by the river
Silver fish lay on it's side
Down by the river

Doctor put us both to bed
He dosed us up and he shook his head
Only foolish people go, he said
Down by the river

Why do willows weep said he
Because they're dying gradually
>From the waste from the factories
Down by the river

Down by the river
Down by the river
Why do willows weep said he
Down by the river

In time the river banks will die
The region wilt and the dogs will fly
There'll be a tear in the otter's eye
Down by the river

The banks will soon be black and dead
And where the otter's raised his head
Will be a clean white stone instead
Down by the river

Down by the river
Down by the river
The banks will soon be black and dead
Down by the river
