E
Wasting away on the mighty Mississippi
E                              B
Hoping god forgives me for my sins
B
Well starlight stained steamboats,
B                              A#/A
and a rich man clears his throat
A                 E
Took a sip of whiskey from his glass

E
The piano plays softly and his daughter screamed, "get off me"
E                             B
His wife she died a few years back
B
He drinks and drinks for days
B                          A#/A
but the memories they stay
A                           E
And the tears they flow like alcohol

E
Well his daughter she loves me,
E
said she's always thinkin of me
E                            B
That's why I stand here on this boat today
B                                                   A#/A
I watched a rich man clear his throat, But what that rich man doesn't know
A                     E
is that I'll take his life away

E
Please forgive me god, For the things I've done
E
I could hide my problems,
E     B
I could run
B                                     A#/A
But it was I who held the gun, and I am the setting sun
A                         E
And I promise I will never, ever run

Solo:
Dbm, E, Ab,A, E, Ab, A, Dbm, Ab

A           Dbm  Ab                     A
I said, "take me down where the lovers died."
                B
Where those steamboats don't go,
                                   A              E
and that Mississippi flows all night
E                       B       A       E
Wastin' away where the lovers died

E
Wastin away on the mighty Mississippi
E                                B
Hoping god forgives me for my sins
B
Well It was I who held the gun
B                    A#/A
and I am the setting sun
A                             E
And I promise I will never, ever run
