The Chords.

The Intro riff goes with these chords.

 Am  F  C  Em7


Verse 1.
C                            Am (Em7)
Anywhere you go, anyone you meet
C                                      Am (Em7)
Remember that your eyes can be your enemies
C                                            Am (Em7)
I said hell is so close, and heavens out of reach,
F               
But I ain't giving up quite yet,
         Em7
I've got too much to lose,


Chorus.

Am                      F          C   Em7
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Am                      F              Em7           C
Hold me down, sweet and low and I will carry you home,
Am                      F          C   Em7
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Am         F   Em7
Hold me down, and i'll carry you home.

Verse 2.

C                                         Am (Em7)
The rain is gonna fall, the sun is gonna shine
C                                         Am (Em7)
The wind is gonna blow, the waters gonna rise
C                                         Am (Em7)
She said, when that day comes look into my eyes
F                                      Em7
But no ones giving up quite yet, we've got too much to lose,

Chorus.

Am                      F          C   Em7
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Am                      F              Em7           C
Hold me down, sweet and low and I will carry you home,
Am                      F          C   Em7
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Am         F   Em7
Hold me down, and i'll carry you,

Am
all the way
            F
When you say you're fine
                    C              Em7
But you're still young and out of line,
    Am            F
When all I need's to turn around
C               Em7
To make it last, to make it count,
Am                F
I ain't gonna make the same mistakes
C                Em7
That put my mama in her grave
Am               F C Em7 -[Spread through that one word]
I don't wanna be alone.


Chorus.

Am                      F          C   Em7
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Am                      F              Em7           C
Hold me down, sweet and low and I will carry you home,
Am                      F          C   Em7
Hold me down, sweet and low little girl
Am         F   Em7
Hold me down, and i'll carry you home.
