"Bottom Of The River"

[x indicates percussive guitar slap]  

(Chorus)
[Am] Hold my hand
[C] Ooh, baby, itís a [G]long way down to the [D] bottom of the river
[Am] Hold my hand,
[C]Ooh, baby, itís a [G]long way down, a [D]long way down

[Am]If you get [C]sleep or [G]if you get [D]none
(The [Am]cockís gonna [C]call in the [G]morning, [D]baby)
[Am]Check the [C]cupboard for your [G]daddyís [D]gun
(Red sun rises like an early warning)
[Am]The Lordís gonna [C]come for your [G]first born [D]son
(His hairís on fire and his heart is burning)
[Am]Go to the [C]river where the [G]water [D]runs
(Wash him deep where the tides are turning)

[Am]

And [C]if [G]you [D]fall....
And [C]if [G]you [D]fall....

[Am]Hold my [x]hand
[C]Ooh, [x] baby, itís a [G]long way [x]down to the [D]bottom of the [x]river
[Am]Hold my [x]hand,
[C]Ooh, [x]baby, itís a [G]long way [x]down, a [D]long way down

The wolves will chase you by the pale moonlight
(Drunk and driven by a devilís hunger)
Drive your son like a railroad spike
(Into the water, let it pull him under)
Donít you lift him, let him drown alive
(The good Lord speaks like a rolling thunder)
Let that fever make the water rise
(And let the river run dry)

[D]And I said

Hold my hand
Ooh, baby, itís a long way down to the bottom of the river
Hold my hand,
Ooh, baby, itís a long way down, a long way down
Hold my hand
Ooh, baby, it's a long way, a long long long way
Hold my hand
Ooh, baby, it's a long way down, a long way down


Alternatively, you could use

[Am]If you get sleep or [C]if you get none
(The [G]cockís gonna call in the [D]morning, baby)
