   Am                    C             G                  F
I come from down in the valley, where mister when you're young
      Am             C   F                C
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
        F                               C            G     Am
Me and Mary we met in high school, when she was just seventeen
     Dm                               C                     F
We'd ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green
        Am          F          G                   C
We'd go down to the river, And into the river we'd dive
   Am          F           G      F
Oh down to the river we'd ride
     Am        C              G                    F                                  
I got Mary pregnant, And man that was all she wrote
    Am                C                      F                
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
     F                                   C           G      Am
We went down to the courthouse, And the judge put it all to rest
   Dm                                                C                 
No wedding day smiles no walk down in the aisle, No flowers no wedding dress
                   Am           F         G                   C
That night we went down to the river, And into the river we'd dive
    Am          F           G      F
Oh down to the river we did ride

Am C G F I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company Am C F C But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy F Now all them things that seemed so important C G Am Well mister they vanished right into the air Dm C F Now I just act like I don't remember, Mary acts like she don't care Am C But I remember us riding in my brother's car G F Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir Am C At night on them banks I'd lie awake F C And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take F C G Am Now those memories come back to haunt me, They haunt me like a curse Dm C F Is a dream a lie if it don't come true, Or is it something worse that sends me Am F G C Down to the river though I know the river is dry, Am F G That sends me down to the river tonight Am F G C Am F G Down to the river, My baby and I, Oh down the river we'd ride Am F G C Am F G oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh oh Repeat to fade.
