#  
I [Em] come from down in the [G] valley, 
where [D] mister, when you're [C] young.        
They [Em] bring you up to [G] do 
[C] like your daddy [G] done         
Me and [C] Mary we met in high school 
When [G] she was just [D] seven [Em] teen       
We'd [Am] drive out of this valley down to [G] 
[G] where the fields were [C] green

#Chorus:          
We'd go [Em] down to the [C] river 
And [D] into the river we'd [G] dive     
Oh [Em] down to the [C] river wed [D] ride [C]

# 
Then [Em] I got Mary pregnant [G] And [D] man, 
that was all she [C] wrote,     
And [Em] for my 19th [G] birthday 
I got a union [C] card and a wedding [G] coat     
We [C] went down to the courthouse  
And the [G] judge put it [D] all to [Em] rest    
No [Am] wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle      
No [G] flowers, no wedding [C] dress

#Chorus:                     
That night we went [Em] down to the [C] river     
And [D] into the river we'd [G] dive     
Oh [Em] down to the [C] river we did [D] ride [C]
# 
I [Em] got a job working constr-[G]-uction 
for the [D] Johnstown Company [C]      
But [Em] lately there ain't been [G] much work 
on acc-[C]-ount of the economy [G]
Now [C] all them things that seemed so important               
Well mister they [G]  vanished right [D] into the air [Em]            
Now I just [Am] act like I don't remember   
Mary [G] acts like she don't [C] care          
But I reme-[Em]-mber us riding in my [G] brother's car   
Her body [D] tan and wet down at the [C] reservoir      
[Em] At night on them banks [G] I'd lie awake                
And pull her [C] close just to feel each [G] breath she'd 
take           
Now those [C] memories come back to haunt me       
They [G] haunt me [D] like a [Em] curse        
Is a [Am] dream a lie if it don't come true    
Or [G] is it something [C] worse

#Chorus: 
That sends me [Em] down to the [C] river   
Though I [D] know the river is [G] dry                
That sends me [Em] down to the [C] river ton-[D]-ight [C]  
[Em] Down to the [C] river my [D] baby and [G] I     
Oh [Em] down to the [C] river we [D] ride [C] Ooh..
Em  C  D  G       Em  C   C
#Solo: | Em   G   D C | Em   G  G |  
                | C   C    G D   Em | Am  G   C | C
