Verse :
  Bm                     D              A                   G
I come from down in the valley   Where mister, when you're young
       Bm             D  G               D
They bring you up to do like your daddy done
        G                                 D           A    Bm
Me and Mary we met in high school  When she was just seventeen
      Em                                D                     G
We'd drive out of this valley down to where the fields were green

Chorus :
         Bm          G        A                    D
We'd go down to the river And into the river we'd dive

Oh down to the river we’d ride

Verse :

Then I got Mary pregnant  And man, that was all she wrote
    Bm           D                      G                  D
And for my 19th birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
    G                                    D           A       Bm
We went down to the courthouse  And the judge put it all to rest
    Em
No wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle
     D                   G
No flowers, no wedding dress

Chorus :
                   Bm          G
That night we went down to the river
    A                    D
And into the river we'd dive
    Bm          G            A   G
Oh down to the river we did ride

Verse :
  Bm                     D               A               G
I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
     Bm                      D              G                 D
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
    G
Now all them things that seemed so important
              D                 A            Bm
Well mister they vanished right into the air
           Em                               D                    G
Now I just act like I don't remember   Mary acts like she don't care

Bridge :
         Bm                      D                       A
But I remember us riding in my brother's car   Her body tan and wet down at
     G               Bm                      D
the reservoir    At night on them banks I'd lie awake
               G                      D
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
           G
Now those memories come back to haunt me
      D        A      Bm
They haunt me like a curse
       Em                                    D                G
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true    Or is it something worse

               Bm          G                 A                D
That sends me down to the river   Though I know the river is dry
               Bm          G       A   G
That sends me down to the river tonight
Bm          G        A       D
Down to the river my baby and I
    Bm          G        A  G
Oh down to the river we ride     Ooh..
