Down To The River

  		


Am 
Lord I can't feed the baby, mama's sick and in bed 
Am 
I've got a world full of worry running wild in my head 
Dm 
I spent all my money just to make ends meet 
                                    Am 
I'm begging Lord won't you send me relief 
E                                            Dm                   Am   E 
There ain't nobody in this world who'd bet a dime on anybody like me 


Am 
So I went down to the river of insufferable sins 
Am 
Lord I tried but the water wouldn't let me come in 
Dm 
Too many lives have been broken 
                              Am 
There's too much blood on my hands 
E                                          Dm                    Am   E 
Ain't no water in this world could turn me back into an innocent man 

Am 
So I made up my mind to find that palace of fire 
Am 
Surely the Lord's fallen angel understands my desire 
Dm 
He's been defiled and defeated still he never gives in 
                                     Am 
I know he'll help me on my feet once again 
E                                           Dm                             Am  E 
Ain't no soul in this whole world but Satan understand the state that I'm in 

Am 
But I went down to the fires of insufferable sin 
Am 
Lord I tried but the devil wouldn't let me come in 
Dm 
Unholy trust has been broken 
                               Am 
He don't know on which side I stand 
E                                               Dm                     Am   E 
There ain't no room among the damned for such a broken and a penitent man 

(Half time) 
Am 
And then my good woman rises from her sickness in bed 
Am 
Puts her hands on my thighs and plants a kiss on my head 
Dm 
Says if the water won't have ya, if the devil's too blind 
                                       Am 
I know that truly you were meant to be mine 
E                                              Dm                         Am   E 
And then she takes me by the hand and shows me how to leave my worries behind 

Am 
I went down to the river of insufferable sins 
Am 
Lord I tried but the water wouldn't let me come in 
Dm 
Too many lives have been broken 
                              Am 
There's too much blood on my hands 
E                                               Dm                        Am       E 
Only one soul in this whole world would have me just the goddamned way that I am
