Intro:
(Fill 1) x4

Verse 1:
    Em                               A                    G
The air all painted pallid grey, the storm was comin' in

Dsus2               /C    /B    Em  (fill 2)
Folks were lining out in all directions

Em                              A                      G
Me an Holt and Henry Short were pitchin' on the skiff,

Dsus2               /C    /B        Em  (fill 2)
Trying to make it home before the night

     Bm/B /F#  /B /F#   A
And the grey waves were rollin',

Bm/B /F# /B     /F#  A
Bold the brave, brave ocean

    G                     Em (Fill 1)x2
And rolled us suckers in

Verse 2:

    Em                             A                     G
Well I don't keep to goings on, I tend to stick with kin

    Dsus2         /C     /B      Em (Fill 2)
But Watson had it in from the beginning

   Em                                  A                        G
He built that house on Chatham bend, a whitewashed knotted pine

Dsus2         /C     /B       Em (Fill 2)
Ninety acres furrowed for the cane

     Bm/B /F#  /B /F#     A
And he drove it down from Georgia

 Bm/B /F#  /B /F#   A
His dad a martyred soldier

       G                 Em  (Fill 1) /G
In the war between the States



Chorus:

 A                 G     Dsus2  /D  /C  /B
Lord, bring down the flood

 A           G    Dsus2
Wash away the blood

    /C     /B      Em
And drown these everglades

    /C     /B      Em
And put us in our place

Bm/B      /F#  /B  /F#       C  
(Fill 3)
We layed Edgar Watson in his grave

   G                     Em (Fill 1)x4
We layed him in his grave

Verse 3:

Em                            A                   G
Till I'm dust I'll never know why he came ashore

Dsus2                  /C      /B        Em (Fill 2)
With all those killers gathered on the shorelines

Em                              A                   G
Kicking holes in ugly mud, with trigger fingers pinched

Dsus2            /C        /B        Em  (Fill 2)
A brace of rifles bristled in the wind

Bm/B /F#  /B /F#   A
And we towed his body northbound

 Bm/B /F#  /B  /F#   A
And buried him all face down

        G               Em (Fill 1)  /G
With a good view into hell

Chorus:

 A                 G     Dsus2 /D  /C  /B
Lord, bring down the flood

 A           G    Dsus2
Wash away the blood

    /C     /B      Em
And drown these everglades

    /C     /B      Em
And put us in our place

Bm/B      /F#  /B  /F#       C 
(Fill 3)
We layed Edgar Watson in his grave

   G                     Em  (Fill 1)
We layed him in his grave

  Em                     Em  (Fill 1)
We layed him in his grave

 Em                  (Fill 1)x3 Em
We layed him in his gra____ve
