Daaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaay (Not sure what he says here, refer to the song)

You take my hand, I'll take your hand,
together we may get away.
This much madness is too much sorrow,
it's impossible to make it today.

She could drag me over the rainbow
and send me away.
Down by the river,
I shot my baby.
Down by the river.

Em7  A  Em7  A

Be on my side, I'll be on your side,
there is no reason for you to hide.
It's so hard for me stayin' here all alone,
when you could be takin' me for a ride.


This might not be perfect, but I think it's pretty close as far as the chords go. listen 
the song and compare, slight alteration may or may not be needed. Hope people enjoy, 
thanks Neil.
