Intro:
Em G D C Am G C Em G I come from down in the valley
D C Where mister, when you're young
Em G C G They bring you up to do like your daddy done
C Me and Mary we met in high school
G D Em When she was just seventeen
Am G C We'd drive out of this valley down to where the fields were green
Em C We'd go down to the river
D G And into the river we'd dive
Em C D C Oh down to the river we’d ride
Then I got Mary pregnant
And man, that was all she wrote
And for my 19th birthday I got a union card and a wedding coat
We went down to the courthouse
And the judge put it all to rest
No wedding day smiles, no walk down the aisle
No flowers, no wedding dress
Solo:
Em G D C Em G C G C G D Em Am G C I got a job working construction for the Johnstown Company
But lately there ain't been much work on account of the economy
Now all them things that seemed so important
Well mister they vanished right into the air
Now I just act like I don't remember
Mary acts like she don't care
But I remember us riding in my brother's car
Her body tan and wet down at the reservoir
At night on them banks I'd lie awake
And pull her close just to feel each breath she'd take
Now those memories come back to haunt me
They haunt me like a curse
Is a dream a lie if it don't come true
Or is it something worse
That sends me down to the river
Though I know the river is dry
That sends me down to the river tonight
Down to the river my baby and I
Oh down to the river we ride
Outro:
Em C D G
