River Boy

Capo on 2nd fret
	  		


INTRO: D  G  A  D 
 
VERSE 1: 
D                            G      
I was born and raised on the river 
         A                D 
It's the only life that I know 
D                             G 
People 'round here have put a name on me 
      A                  D 
And I hear it wherever I go 
 
CHORUS: 
             D          G 
They call me river boy, river boy 
A                 D                          
A good for nothin' river boy 
D                           G 
This old world don't hold a whole lot of joy 
            A             D  
When you're nothin' but a river boy 
 
VERSE 2: 
 
D                            G 
I do a lot of fishin' on the river 
   A                  D 
To make my livin' you see 
D                           G   
When I take my catch to the market place 
    A                  D 
The people call out to me 
 
CHORUS 2: 
              D              G  
And they say, river boy, hey river boy 
A                            D        
You got any fish today there, river boy 
D                   G 
I sell my ware, but nobody cares  
          A                D  
About the feeling's of the river boy 
 
VERSE 3: KEY CHANGE 
  
          E                        A     
There's a pretty girl works at the market place 
  B7                 E  
I see her there everyday 
    E             A    
But when I try to talk to her  
      B7            E  
I can hear her papa say 
 
 
CHORUS 3: 
                    E         A 
Come away from that River boy, he's a river boy 
B7                      E 
Nothin' but a riff-raff river boy 
E                        A 
No girl of mine is gonna waste her time 
     B7                     E 
On a good for nothin' river boy 
 
VERSE 4: 
 
So I head my boat back up the river 
Back to my old fishin' place 
I'm afraid this ol' river's gonna overflow 
From the tears running down my face 
 
CHORUS: 
 
I'm nothin' but a river boy, river boy 
A good for nothin' river boy 
This old world don't hold a whole lot of joy 
When you're nothin' but a river boy 
This old world don't hold a whole lot of joy 
When you're nothin' but a river boy
