The river 

  Em                    G             D                  C
I come from down in the valley, where mister when you're young
     G               Em  C                 G
They bring you up to do, like your daddy's done
       C                               G            F    Em
Me and Mary we met in Highschool, when she was just seventeen
     D                               G                     C
We'd ride out of that valley down to where the fields were green

        G           C         D                   G
We'd go down to the river and into the river we'd dive
    Em          C          D    Dsus4  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
    G                 Em                     C                 G
And for my nineteenth birthday I got a union car and a wedding coat
   C                                   G            F      Em
We went down to the courthouse and the judge put it all to rest
   D                                             G                  C
No weddingday smiles, no walk down the aisle, no flowers no wedding dress

                   G           C          D                   G
That night we went down to the river, and into the river we'd dive
       Em          C            D    Dsus4  D  C
Oooooh down to the river we did ride

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

        G                      Em                      D                       C
But I remember us riding in my brother’s car, her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
   G                       Em                      C                       G
At night on them banks I'd lie awake, and pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
      C                                    G        F      Em
Those memories come back to haunt me, they haunt me like a curse
     D                                     G               C
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true, or is it something worse

              G           C               D                 G
That sends me down to the river, though I know the river is dry
              Em          C       D     Dsus4  D
That sends me down to the river tonight
G           C         D        G
Down to the river, my baby and I
    Em          C        D    Dsus4  D  G
Oh, down to the river we ride

In de derde regel van de coupletten moet de F een D akkoord zijn, in de vierde regels moet de D een Am zijn en de C een Em

Er klopt hier iets niet die G en Em klinken niet in de 2de regel. Ik heb het een aantal keren met het orginele nummer gespeeld, maar het klopt niet, volgens mij hoort het andersom (Em en G) Wel een beetje jammer, als je licentie betaald voor iets dat niet klopt!!! of niet???

Leuke chrod format, alleen de 2de regel klopt niet.

G                                   Em   C                            G
They bring you up to do,    like your daddy's done

Dit moet eerst de Em en dan de G!!! De andere stukken kloppen wel.

Zou je dit misschien willen aanpassen? Andere mensen leren dit ook verkeerd!!!
