Intro: Em / G / D / C / Am / G / C
Em G D C
I come from down in the valley where mister when you're young
Em G C G
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
C G D Em
Me and Mary we met in high school when she was just seventeen
Am G D/F# C
Wed ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green
Em C D D9 G
We'd go down to the river And into the river we'd dive
Em C D C
Oh down to the river we'd ride
Em G D C
Then I got Mary pregnant and man that was all she wrote
Em G
And for my nineteenth birthday
C G
I got a union card and a wedding coat
C G D Em
We went down to the courthouse and the judge put it all to rest
Am
No wedding day smiles no walk down the aisle
G D/F# C
No flowers no wedding dress
Em C D D9 G
That night we went down to the river And into the river we dive
Em C D C
Oh down to the river we did ride
Em G D C
I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
Em G C G
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
C
Now all them things that seemed so important
G Em
Well mister they vanished right into the air
Am G D/F# C
Now I just act like I don't remember Mary acts like she don't care
Em G
But I remember us riding in my brother's car
D C
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
Em G
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
C G
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
C G
Now those memories come back to haunt me
Em
they haunt me like a curse
Am G D/F# C
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true Or is it something worse
Em C D D9 G
that sends me down to the river though I know the river is dry
Em C D C
That sends me down to the river tonight
Em C D G
Down to the river my baby and I
Em C D C
Oh down to the river we ride
