Down To The River

	  		
    G                        Am 
Now me and some buddies were down by the river 
           C                           C---*--*--G 
There were drinkers and dopers and abstainers by choice 
          G                         Am 
There was red wine and white lines, blue smoke and good times 
    D                    C---*--*--G 
But when we all sang, we had us one voice,   singing 

        D                        C        G 
        let's all go down to the river at midnight 
              D                   C         G 
        we'll swim muddy waters n pick us a tune 
               D                         Am          Em         D 
        and we won't give a damn if it's rock, folk, country or blues 

         G                         Am 
Well the sirens were screamin, the blue lights a flashin 
  C                  C---*--*--G 
I got me a ride in a humorless car 
     G                          Am 
They read me my rights and they sensed my conviction 
                D                           C---*---*---G 
They said, "you shall be released when we know what you are." 

         G              Am 
Well the kangaroo court was now in session 
        C                 C--*--*--G 
Exhibit a was a   blaring radio 
            G                        Am 
They said, "son, is it clear what is to be expected?" 
         D                     C-*-*--G 
I said, "sir, your music ain't got no soul" 

        D                        C        G 
        let's all go down to the river at midnight 
              D                   C         G 
        we'll swim muddy waters n pick us a tune 
               D                         Am          Em         D 
        and we won't give a damn if it's rock, folk, country or blues

    G                      Am 
Now woody fed ramblin some old hobo chili 
    C                         C--*--*-G 
And ramblin fed dylan neath a banana tree 
    G                     Am 
And guy and townes made a stew down in texas 
    D                             C-*-*--G 
And brought the whole hog down to tennessee, hey

        let's all go down to the river at midnight
