Highlighted       Show chord diagrams
I decided to put the chords up because no-one else has yet. I personallly think this 
song sounds better with capo on the second fret. and when you start the song hammer on the 
E string twice.

Capo 2nd
Intro: G,C,D,Em,C,D,G



G                             C
baby's gone and i don't know why
     D               Em
she headed out this morning
                              C
like a rusty shot in a hollow sky
     D               G
she left me without warning

G                             C
sooner than the dogs could bark
D               Em
faster than the sun rose
                              C
down to the banks in an old mule cart
     D               G
she took a flat boat 'cross the shallows

               C
left me in my tears to drown
     D             Em
she left a baby daughter
                                   C
now the river's wide and deep and brown
       D              G
she's crossing muddy waters


G                             C
tobacco standing in the fields
  D               Em
be rotten come november
                              C
and a bitter heart will not reveal
     D               G
a spring that love remembers

when that sweet brown girl of mine
hair black as a raven
we broke the bread and drank the wine
from a jug that she'd been saving

               C
left me in my tears to drown
     D             Em
she left a baby daughter
                                   C
now the river's wide and deep and brown
       D              G
she's crossing muddy waters

baby's crying and the daylight's gone
that big oak tree is groaning
in a rush of wind and a river song
i can hear my true love moaning

crying for her baby child
oh crying for her husband
crying for that rivers wild
to take her from her loved ones

               C
left me in my tears to drown
     D             Em
she left a baby daughter
                                   C
now the river's wide and deep and brown
       D              G
she's crossing muddy waters
                                   C
now the river's wide and deep and brown
       D              G
she's crossing muddy waters
