Chris Janson – You Me And The River 

Capo 0 with

VERSE
If it wasn’t so dark out here tonight
I know I’d be a hell of a sight
Covered in Arkansas clay from head to toe
If I told you once, I told you twice
You better not touch my Clementine
But you didn’t listen, now you’re fillin’ up this hole

CHORUS
Hey buddy, hey buddy, ain’t that Mississippi muddy
In this town, well, yeah, she takes what you give her
So tonight I lay me down to sleep
And pray my soul and my secret to keep
Between you, me and the river

VERSE
It’s been a long week working overtime
That’s why I got home early tonight
And when I saw your car I could smell the trouble
So I turned off my hеadlights
And saw your silhouettes through candlelight
And I wеnt to the shed to get my shovel

CHORUS
Hey buddy, hey buddy, ain’t that Mississippi muddy
In this town, well, yeah, she takes what you give her
So tonight I lay me down to sleep
And pray my soul and my secret to keep
Between you, me and the river

SOLO


VERSE
They’re gonna come knockin’, it’s a matter of time
The last goodbye, my alibi
And where Clementine ran off to, they’ll wonder
I won’t tell ’em she’s cheatin’ on me
But I’ll smile at the memory
Of my diamond on her hand as she went under

CHORUS
Hey buddy, hey buddy, ain’t that Mississippi muddy
In this town, well, yeah, she takes what you give her
So tonight I lay me down to sleep
And pray my soul and my secret to keep
Between you, me and the river
Between you, me and the river
