This is the way it is played on "The River" album. During the verses you should
pick the chords with basic pattern of bass-bass-1-3-2-1. In the chorus and
bridge, you should be strumming with a down-down-up-up-down-up pattern.

I come from down in the valley, where mister when you're young

They bring you up to do like your daddy done

Me and Mary we met in high school, when she was just seventeen

We'd ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green

We'd go down to the river, And into the river we'd dive
Em C D Cadd9
Oh down to the river we'd ride
VERSE 2
Em G D Cadd9
Then I got Mary pregnant, And man that was all she wrote
Em G C G
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat

We went down to the courthouse, And the judge put it all to rest
Am G C
No wedding day smiles no walk down in the aisle, No flowers no wedding dress

That night we went down to the river, And into the river we'd dive
Em C D Cadd9
On down to the river we did ride

Em G D Cadd9
I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
Em G C G
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy

Now all them things that seemed so important

Now I just act like I don't remember, Mary acts like she don't care
BRIDGE
Em G
But I remember us riding in my brother's car

Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
Em G
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
C G
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take

Now those memories come back to haunt me, They haunt me like a curse
Am D G
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true, Or is it something worse that sends me

Down to the river though I know the river is dry,
Em F G
That sends me down to the river tonight

Down to the river, My baby and I, Oh down the river we'd ride

oh oh oh oh oh oh
