Down By The River


by Neil Young
Be on my side, I'll be on your side
There is no reason for you to hide
It's so hard for me staying here all alone
When you could be taking me for a ride

Em - - - /   / A - - - /   / (4x) 
( C - - - /   / Bm - - - /   //)

 C:	She could drag me over the rainbow
Send me away...
Down by the river,
I shot my lady
Down by the river, dead,
Ooo, shot her dead

C - - - /   / Bm - - - /   / C - - - /   / Bm - - - / D - - - /
G - - - / D - - - / - - A - / - - - - / (3x)
Em - - - /   / A - - - /   //

(Long solo)

You take my hand, I'll take your hand
Together we may get away
This much madness is too much sorrow
It's impossible to make it today

 C:	She could drag me over the rainbow
Send me away...
Down by the river,
I shot my lady
Down by the river, dead,
Ooo, shot her dead

(Short solo)

Be on my side, I'll be on your side
There is no reason for you to hide
It's so hard for me staying here all alone
When you could be taking me for a ride

 C:	She could drag me over the rainbow
Send me away...
Down by the river,
I shot my lady
Down by the river, dead,
Ooo, shot her dead
