G D A G 
G A D D D/C# D/F# G 

[Verse 1]
G                   D
I went out late one night,
    A                           G
The moon and stars were shining bright
   G                     A          D
A storm come up and the trees come down,
   D     D/C#         D/F#     G
I tell you boys I was waterbound

[Verse 2]
G                   D
Waterbound on a stranger's shore
A                   G
River rising to my door
G                      A     D
Carried my home to the field below
 D    D/C#      D/F#       G
I'm waterbound, nowhere to go.

G D A G 
G A D D D/C# D/F# G 

[Verse 3]
G                   D
Carved my name on an old barn wall
A                   G
Or no-one would know I was there at all
   G               A          D
Stable's dry on a winter's night
       D         D/C#         D/F#       G
If you turn your head you can see the light.

[Verse 4]
G                   D
Black cat crawling on an old box car
A                   G
A rusty door and a falling star
   G                  A          D
Ain't got a dime in my nation sack
     D     D/C#      D/F#       G
I'm waterbound and I can't get back
G D A G 
G A D D D/C# D/F# G 

[Verse 5]
G                   D
It's I'm going and I won't be back
A                   G
If you don't believe me count my tracks
   G                     A          D
The river's long and the river's wide
     D        D/C#        D/F#   G
I'll meet you boys on the other side

[Verse 6]
G                   D
So say my name and don't forget
A                   G
The water still ain't got me yet
   G                   A          D
Ain't nothing but I'm bound to roam
    D     D/C#      D/F#       G
I'm waterbound and I can't get home

G D A G 
G A D D D/C# D/F# G

I think standard tuning works fine, also I believe verses end in a Bm. Thanks for tabbing!
