                    INTRO  - HARMONICA

    	 -6 6 -6 -7 7 8 -8 7 6 -6 8 -8 7 -8 -6

   Am                    C             G                  F
I come from down in the valley, where mister when you're young
      Am             C   F                C
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
        F                               C            G     Am
Me and Mary we met in high school, when she was just seventeen
     Dm                               C                     F
We'd ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green
        Am          F          G                   C
We'd go down to the river, And into the river we'd dive
   Am          F           G      F
Oh down to the river we'd ride
     Am        C              G                    F                                  
I got Mary pregnant, And man that was all she wrote
    Am                C                      F                
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
     F                                   C           G      Am
We went down to the courthouse, And the judge put it all to rest
   Dm                                                C                 
No wedding day smiles no walk down in the aisle, No flowers no wedding dress
                   Am           F         G                   C
That night we went down to the river, And into the river we'd dive
    Am          F           G      F
Oh down to the river we did ride

                         HARMONICA SOLO

              -6     6 -6 -7  7     8  -8     7  -6
                8   9  -10     -10  8     9 -10 9
                           8    9 -10 9
                           8  8 -8 7 -6
                      8 -8 -8   7 -8 7 -6
                            6  7 -7 -6

Am                        C               G        F
I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
      Am                    C            F                   C
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
                  C             G        Am
Well mister they vanished right into the air
   Dm                                       C                  F
Now I just act like I don't remember, Mary acts like she don't care
        Am                       C
But I remember us riding in my brother's car
         G                        F
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
    Am                      C
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
             F                        C
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
           F                                    C        G    
Now those memories come back to haunt me, They haunt me like a curse
       Dm                                   C               F
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true, Or is it something worse that sends me
Am           F              G                C
Down to the river though I know the river is dry,
              Am           F       G
That sends me down to the river tonight
Am           F         G       C     Am     
  F         G
Down to the river, My baby and I, Oh down the river we'd ride
Am    F  G     C        Am     F   
oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh

Repeat to fade.
