Intro: Bm G
       Bm G A D

D               G
James River blues
D                        G
I just heard the awful news
D                          G
I could steer around the rocks
D                              G 
But they're bustin' down the docks

D G D G

D              G
James River blues
D                     G
That train came on through
D                       G
And the works getting slow
D                       G 
Now where's a boat man to go?


Bm                     G
I think I'll float on down
Bm            G
To Richmond town
Bm                     G
They don't need us anymore
                               Bm
Haulin' freight from shore to shore
                           G
That big iron hauls much more
                C
Than we ever could before

D G D G

D                          G
I've seen good men going wrong
D                           G
I've seen bad ones get it right
D                      G
As that river rolls along
D                       G 
I'll be stepping out tonight


Bm            G
On the cool flow
Bm                    G
Floatin' down, down below
Bm                         G
The bridge to the waters edge
Bm                   G
From the ridge to ledge
Bm                     G
From the hills to the sea
Bm              G   C
I'll become a memory

D              G
James River Blues
D              G
James River Blues
D              G
James River Blues

I'm pretty sure at the end of the Chorus it is an "A" Chord and not a C. If you listen to the recording you'll hear it. But Great tab otherwise. I'll give you 5. good job

LMenke003 is right, the 2 chorus endings should be like this:
G
That big iron hauls much more
A D
Than we ever could before

And:
Bm G A D
I'll become a memoryyyy
