Verse 1:
[Em]             [G]
See this ancient riverbed
[D]               [C]
See where all our follies are led
[Em]                  [D]                  [Em]
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

[Em]            [G]
I was just some towhead teen
[D]                           [C]
Feeling 'round for fingers to get in between
[Em]                  [D]                  [Em]
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

Chorus:
[Em]       [D]     [Em]
The season rubs me wrong
[Em]       [D]    [C]
The summer swells anon
            [Em]          [G]
So knock me down, tear me up
            [D]                        [C]
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup
[Em]                  [D]                  [Em]
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

Verse 2:
[Em]               [G]
Sweet descend this rabble round
[D]                       [C]
Pretty little patter of a seaport town
[Em]                       [D]                       [Em]
Rolling down the water and rolling down the old main drag

[Em]             [G]
All dolled up in gabardine
    [D]                    [C]
The last flashing lee to appear nineteen
[Em]                   [D]                   [Em]
Queen of the water and queen of the old main drag

Chorus:
[Em]       [D]     [Em]
The season rubs me wrong
[Em]       [D]    [C]
The summer swells anon

So knock me down, tear me up
            [D]                        [C]
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup

Down by the water and down by the old main drag

So knock me down, tear me up
            [D]                        [C]
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup

Down by the water and down by the old main drag
