C       F           C       F 
Ol' Man River, that Ol' Man River, 
   C         F               C         F 
he don't say nothin', but he must know somethin', 
   G          G7          G        G7      C      F C F 
he just keeps rollin', he keeps on rollin' along. 
   C           F               C           F 
He don't plant tatters, and he don't plant cotton, 
    C         Em             Am      B7 
and them what plants em, are soon forgotten 
    G       Dm     G          F       C      F C 
But Ol' Man River, just keeps rollin' along. 
Em      Am     Em        Am 
You and me, we sweat and strain, 
Em       Am         Em          Am 
body all achin' and racked with pain. 
Em        B7        Em        B7 
Tote that barge and lift that bail, 
    Em           B7            Em       Dm    G 
you get a little drunk and you lands in jail. 
C      F          C       F 
I gets weary, and sick of trying, 
    C        Dm              Am        D7 
I'm tired of livin', but I'm scared of dyin', 
    C       Am        Dm         G7      C      F C 
but Ol' Man River, he just keeps rollin' along.

Lack of accuracy. Clearly wrong. It really is just not right. The fact that the two "chorus" lines are different each time shows that this is just not correct, as the chorus remains the same. The bridge is good, but pretty much nothing else is.
