The song is sung a cappella, so I did my best.

CHORUS:
 E            D
Hold my hand
                    E       D           A             C
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down to the bottom of the river
 E            D
Hold my hand
                    E       D        C       A
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down, a long way down


VERSE 1:

A           C       E           A
If you get sleep or if you get none
    E            D           C        A
The cock's gonna call in the morning, baby
A          C                 E       A
Check the cupboard for your daddy's gun
E        D             C      A
Red sun rises like an early warning
     D            F             A          D
The Lord's gonna come for your first born son
    A          G            F         D
His hair's on fire and his heart is burning
   A          C               E     A
So go to the river where the water runs
E         D              C         A
Wash him deep where the tides are turning


BRIDGE:

    E       D
And if you fall
 F      E
If you fall


CHORUS

 E            D
Hold my hand
                    E       D           A             C
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down to the bottom of the river
 E            D
Hold my hand
                    E       D        C       A
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down, a long way down


VERSE 2:

      A          C                E        A
The wolves will chase you by the pale moonlight
 E         D           C       A
Drunk and driven by a devil's hunger
 A          C          E        A
Drive your son like a railroad spike
 E        D             C        A
Into the water, let it pull him under
 D         F                 A     D
Don't you lift him, let him drown alive
     A         G            F       D
The good Lord speaks like a rolling thunder
 A        C              E     A
Let that fever make the water rise
     E
And let the river run dry

And I said


CHORUS x 2

 E            D
Hold my hand
                    E       D           A             C
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down to the bottom of the river
 E            D
Hold my hand
                    E       D        C       A
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down, a long way down
