Better Days To Come chords – Lonesome River Band

 G D7 G 
Don't remind me of things in my past

         C D7 
Oh I've fallen down along the way

                G B7 Em 
You're not the first you won't be the last

    A7 D7 
In fact you're the second one today


            G D7 G 
That don't get me down what’s done is done

       C D7 
And I refuse to re-live yesterday

         G B7 Em C 
Cause I believe my best days are yet to come

            G D7 G 
If I could only get this one out of the way


              C D7 
I don't know about tomorrow

       C D7 
Yesterday has passed and gone

       C D7 B7 Em 
Don't judge me by my past and I'll try

        C D7 G 
And do better in days to come


                   D7 G 
Should you see me crying today

       C D7 
Oh it won't be cause I'm looking back

         G B7 Em 
I don't deal with old memories that way

       A7 D7 
Those tragic scenes have faded to black


            G D7 G 
They don't get me down what's done is done

           C D7 
I've only groomed to feel today's pain

          G B7 Em C 
When the sun comes up on another day

          G D7 G 
I'll put yesterday behind me once again


              C D7 
I don't know about tomorrow

       C D7 
Yesterday has passed and gone

       C D7 B7 Em 
Don't judge me by my past and I'll try

        C D7 G 
And do better in days to come


            G D7 G 
That don't get me down what’s done is done

       C D7 
And I refuse to re-live yesterday

         G B7 Em C 
Cause I believe my best days are yet to come

            G D7 G 
If I could only get this one out of the way

 E 
Down in Louisiana, got too much to lose
 A 
Down in Louisiana, got too much to lose
 B7                            
I got twenty years of living
                      E 
With these old Caine River Blues


Work at tenant farming, Jacob is my name
I work at tenant farming, Jacob is my name
I spent half my life getting blisters
From cutting sugar cane


Got me a son named Jimmy, got a wife named Marie
Said, I got me a son named Jimmy, got a wife named Marie
I'm getting old working in the sun all day
But she done alright by me


She said Jimmy needs some schooling, so he doesn't end up like you
Said, Jimmy needs some schooling, so he doesn't end up like you
But buying his books on the money I make
It's a damn hard thing to do


Mr. Jackson wants to see me, so he called me in at four
Mr. Jackson wants to see me, but he called me in at four
Said, I got me combine, Jacob
I don't need you anymore


INSTRUMENTAL: 


Well, I got a brother named Virgil, he sells crack cocaine
I got me a brother named Virgil, he sells crack cocaine
He got rich a long time ago
And he left that sugar cane


Virgil said hey Jacob, I'll make you a deal
Virgil said hey Jacob, I'll make you a deal
I got to get some good to Appaloosas 
I need you behind the wheel


We were headed south on a two lane road called highway 1-9-0
We were headed south on a two-lane road called highway 1-9-0
Mr. trooper pulled us over outside of town
He said, step out nice and slow


Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil, when he tried to run
Mr. Trooper shot poor Virgil, when tried to run
But I killed Mr. Trooper
With Virgil's old shotgun


Down in Louisiana, got nothing left to lose
Down in Louisiana, got nothing left to lose
Now I'm going to Angola
With these ole Caine River Blues

                   Am 
I told myself I'd stay away
   G Dm 
I got no business 'round here today
                Am 
You are so not good for me
     G Dm 
And everybody knows


     C Dm 
The way you break my heart again and again
       C 
But before I know, I'm too close
 A 
One sweet look


CHORUS:
              Dm C 
And then you pull me under
 G Dm 
With a touch that's like no other
               C 
I'm drifting, drowning
         G 
There's nothing I can do
                            Dm Am G Dm 
But fall into the river of you


                       Am 
Well, I thought I saw love's reflection
 G Dm 
Just to feel your cold rejection
                 Am 
Every tear adds to the water
      G Dm 
That I keep swimming in


      C Dm 
Even I know, I'm a fool, a reckless fool for you
        C 
'Cause I keep coming 'round here
      A 
Like I got nothing to lose


CHORUS:
          Dm C 
Then you pull me under
 G Dm 
With a touch that's like no other
               C 
I'm drifting, drowning
         G 
There's nothing I can do

But fall into the river of you


CHORUS:
           Dm C

With a touch that's like no other

I'm drifting, drowning

But fall into the river


CHORUS:  (## fade to end ##)

You pull me under

With a touch that's like no other

I'm drifting, drowning

    G 
I came in three days early
                  C/G 
To meet my boat
     G Gadd9 
It ain’t the life of Riley

It’s quiet over Christmas

If you got no place to go
    G Gadd9 
I got my home from river rats
     Em7 CMaj7/G G Gadd9 G 
The only home I know


    G 
I found myself a flophouse
                           C/G 
And I hit the streets at nine
  G Gadd9 
Get some grub and drink a beer
  Em7 CMaj7/G 
Maybe go down the line


         G 
These chips will take your money

Then I saw a young girl standing

In a doorway in the gloom


       G Gadd9 
We’d hardly started talking
     G C/G 
The old scenario

I never asked what got her started

Plan some extra time, if you come to visit

My life is made of, nights like these
 Cm A B 
It ain’t much but I’ve never been hard to please

Down By The River O chords – Rev Hammer

 Down By The River O’ by Rev Hammer, featuring The Levellers as backing.
My first submission to UG. Quite a simple foot-stomping song to play. Hope you enjoy it! 
http://www.revhammer.com

Verse 1

 Dm 
Well we left the city and the fourteenth floor
         Am C Dm 
We went down by the river o Joe
 Dm 
Though then we never knew what we were travelling for
         Am C Dm 
We went down by the river o Joe
 Dm 
Thirty miles to a place that we had not seen
           Am C 
Where the land lies flat and the wind blows keen
            Dm 
It was the prettiest place I’ve ever been,
 Am C Dm 
Down by the river o Joe.

Verse 2

 Dm 
Well my dad got a job under the factory law
         Am C Dm 
We went down by the river o Joe
 Dm 
With a house for his kids and so much more
         Am C Dm 
We went down by the river o Joe
 Dm 
It was through the door, through the gate
           Am C 
There was me and my brother and a new-found mate
          Dm 
Under the mother-moon ‘till it got late,
           Am C Dm 
We stayed Down by the river o Joe.

Chorus
            Dm 
I said the River o’ the River o’ the River o’ Joe,
     Am C Dm 
The River ain’t never for sale,
        Dm 
I said I was born by the River o’ Joe,
         Am C Dm 
And the River ain’t a-never for sale,
          Dm 
Well you can make your deals in the dead of night
         Am C 
You can bribe who the bloody hell you like,
     Dm Am C Dm 
But I was born by the River o’ Joe and the river ain’t never for sale.

Verse 3
          Dm 
Now they say one time for a week it poured,
 Am C Dm 
Down by the River o’ Joe,
       Dm 
‘Till all you could hear was a pounding roar,
 Am C Dm 
Down by the River o’ Joe,
               Dm 
They tried to save the church with sand and bags,
          Am C 
But that River kept rising ‘till it burst it’s banks,
       Dm 
And a-pretty soon that street got sank,
 Am C Dm 
Down by the River o’ Joe.

Chorus
            Dm 
I said the River o’ the River o’ the River o’ Joe,
     Am C Dm 
The River ain’t never for sale,
        Dm 
I said I was born by the River o’ Joe,
         Am C Dm 
And the River ain’t a-never for sale,
          Dm 
Well you can make your deals in the dead of night
         Am C 
You can bribe who the bloody hell you like,
     Dm Am C Dm 
But I was born by the River o’ Joe and the river ain’t never for sale.

Verse 4
     Dm 
Now many warm days and good times there are,
 Am C Dm 
Down by the River o’ Joe
     Dm 
And people will travel from miles about to go
 Am C Dm 
Down by the River o’ Joe,
         Dm 
But the locals still speak of the endless rain,
     Am C 
The revenge of the muddy tides again,
           Dm 
To the developers who would bring change,
 Am C Dm 
Down by the river o’ Joe.

Chorus
            Dm 
I said the River o’ the River o’ the River o’

Drank Like A River chords – Whiskeytown V2

 Based on the entire song and aligned with the song chart for the "Faithless 
Street" LP version so the timing and chords are set. The strum pattern for Chorus 
is slightly different than the Verse and the Refrain so listen carefully to for 
the variations. Also, it's a two guitar song. This is the main, driving rhythm. 
Great fun to play and to sing.

    To under- stand your fears
           C G6 Am F 
But we're north and south of the river

           C G6 
I've been doing it wrong all of my life
 Am F 
   This holy town has turned me over
             C G6 
A young man running from what he didn't understand
           Am F 
While the wind from the Loch just get colder, colder

sound rather boring to me.  Tuning to Drop D allows you to 
play the bass line along with the chords for a sound much more 
like the record.

Me, my thoughts are flower strewn, ocean storm, bayberry moon.
G                  A           D
I have got to leave to find my way
G                     A               D              Em
Watch the road and memorize this life that pass before my eyes,
G              A          D
  nothing is going my way


   D - Dm/F - Dsus2/E - G
   D - Dm/F - A7sus4


   D               Dm/F              Dsus2/E             G
The ocean is the rivers goal, a need to leave the water knows.
      D                Dm/F           A7sus4
We're closer now than light years to go.

G               A              D             Em
I have got to find the river, bergamot and vetiver
G                A                D
 Run through my head and fall away.
G                    A             D              Em
Leave the road and memorize this life that pass before my eyes,
G              A         D
  nothing is going my way.


 *REPEAT INTRO RIFF*


        D               Dm/F              Dsus2/E          G
There's no one left to take the lead, but I tell you and you can see
          D             Dm/F        A7sus4
We're closer now and light years to go.
 D               Dm/F                 Dsus2/E        G
Pick up here and chase the ride.  The river empties to the tide;
D             Dm/F        A7sus4
Fall into the ocean.

    G              A              D               Em
The river to the ocean goes, a fortune for the undertow.
G                 A         D
  None of this is going my way.
G                  A               D              Em
There is nothing left to throw of ginger, lemon, indigo,
G             A                 D
  Coriander stem and rose of hay.
   G                    A                D              Em
Strength and courage overrides these privileged and weary eyes of
G            A           D
River poet search naivete.
G                   A                 D                Em
Pick up here and chase the ride, the river empties to the tide.
G                A              D
 All of this is coming your way.
