Down By The River            (Albert Hammond - 1972)


C                        F
City life was gettin' us down
 G                      C
So we spent the weekend out of town
 Am                         Dm
Pitched the tent on a patch of ground
G           C
Down by the river
C                          F
Little fire and drank some wine
G                         C
You put your jeans on top of mine
Am                         Dm
Said: come in, the water's fine
G            C
Down by the river


C             F
Down by the river
G           C
Down by the river
Am                 Dm
Said: come in, the water's fine
G            C
Down by the river


C                        F
Didn't feel too good all night
G                         C
So we took a walk in the mornin' light
Am                    Dm
We came across the strangest side
 G          C
Down by the river
C                       F
Silver fish lay on it's side
 G                     C
It was washed up by the early tide
 Am             Dm
I wonder how it died
G            C
Down by the river

C           F
Down by the river
G            C
Down by the river
Am                  Dm
Silver fish lay on it's side
G            C
Down by the river

C                     F
Doctor put us both to bed
G                           C
He dosed us up and he shook his head
 Am                    Dm
Only foolish people go, he said
G            C
Down by the river
C                     F
Why do willows weep said he
G                       C
Because they're dying gradually
Am                      Dm
>From the waste from the factories
G           C
Down by the river

C           F
Down by the river
G           C
Down by the river
Am                 Dm
Why do willows weep said he
G            C
Down by the river

D                        G
In time the river banks will die
A                            D
The region wilt and the dogs will fly
Hm                        Em
There'll be a tear in the otter's eye
A            D
Down by the river
 D                           G
The banks will soon be black and dead
A                            D
And where the otter's raised his head
Hm                      Em
Will be a clean white stone instead
A            D
Down by the river

D            G
Down by the river
A            D
Down by the river
Hm                       Em
The banks will soon be black and dead
 A           D
Down by the river

The original song is written in Bb,
and will change to C; that means:

C  = Bb
F  = Eb
G  = F
Am = Gm
Dm = Cm
