[Intro]

D A D

[Verse]
DThought I'd sing to the river
G DJust cheer her on her way
DShe's a blue old girl
D AThat no one cares to travel on these days
DI know some say she's lazy
G DShe was fast enough before
DHalf of every cotton crop
A DCame floating past my door
GAnd there used to be a dance hall
DWhen the gambling boat still ran
EThe air was full of lamp light
AAnd the sound of dixie land
DBut the river met her god now?
G DShe's a melancholy girl
DShe never sees the delta queen
E AOr the Alabama pearl
DAnd she looks like she's lonely
G DAs she tumbles to the sea
DShe's headed down to Mexico
A DTo find some company
[Interlude] D D G D D D E A D D G D D D A D [Verse]
GWell the only time I cursed her
G DWas the spring of '65
EShe rolled across my bean field
E ALooking more than ten miles wide
DWell I shoulda seen it comin'
G DAs it does from time to time
DWomen's gonna make a fuss
D E AWhen no one pays her any mind
DSo thought I'd sing to the river
G DJust cheer her on her way
DShe's a blue old girl
D A Dthat no one cares to travel on these days
DShes a blue old girl
Dthat no one cares
A Dto travel on these days
[Outro] D A D
