Bonnie Prince Billy – Ohio River Boat Song chords

Intro - A B A B

EWhen it's time from work to go
A EAnd in my boat I row
A ECross the muddy Ohio
BWhen the evening light is falling
EAnd I looked towards Floyd's Knobs
A EWhere the afterglories glow
A EAnd I dream on two bright eyes
B EWith a merry mouth below
A EShe's my beauteous Catarina
A EShe's my joy and sorrow too
A EThough I know she is untrue
BOh but I cannot live without her
EFor my heart's a boat in tow
A EAnd I would give the world to know
A EIf she means to let me go
B EAs I sing the whole day through
Electric solo - A B A B
ECatarina, your lovely hair
A EHas more beauty, I declare
A EThan all the tresses there
BFrom Smoketown to Oldham County
EBe they black, red, gold or brown
A ELet them hang to lenghts below
A EThey mean not as much to me
B EAs a melting flake of snow
A EAnd her dance is like the gleam
A EOf the sunlight on the stream
A EAnd the screeching bluejays seem
BTo form her name when screaming
EBut my heart is full of woe
A EFor last night she made me go
A EAnd the tears begin to flow
B EAs I sing the whole day through
Repeat last verse (chorus).
