[Chorus]

[E7]Let it rain, [Eflat6]let it pour, 
[E7]Let it rain a whole lot more, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. 
[E7]Let the rain drive right on, 
[E7]Let the waves sweep along, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. [B7]  (→slide up one fret) [B7]


[E7]My old gal's [Eflat6]a good old pal, 
[E7]And she looks like a water fowl, 
[A]When I get them deep river [E]blues.
[E7]Ain't no one to cry for me, 
[E7]And the fish all go out on a spree 
[A]When I get them deep river [E]blues. [B7]  (→slide up one fret) [B7]


[E7]Give me back [Eflat6]my old boat, 
[E7]I'm gonna sail if she'll float, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues, 
[E7]I'm goin' back to Muscle Shoals, 
[E7]Times are better there I'm told, 
[A]Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. [B7]  (→slide up one fret) [B7]

 
[Chorus]

[E7]Let it rain, [Eflat6]let it pour, 
[E7]Let it rain a whole lot more, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. 
[E7]Let the rain drive right on, 
[E7]Let the waves sweep along, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. [B7]  (→slide up one fret) [B7]


[E7]If my boat [Eflat6]sinks with me. 
[E7]I'll go down, don't you see, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues, 
[E7]Now I'm gonna say goodbye, 
[E7]And if I sink, just let me die, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. [B7] (→slide up one fret) [B7]

 
[Chorus]

[E7]Let it rain, [Eflat6]let it pour, 
[E7]Let it rain a whole lot more, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. 
[E7]Let the rain drive right on, 
[E7]Let the waves sweep along, 
[A]'Cause I got them deep river [E]blues. [B7]  (→slide up one fret) [B7]

The chord marked as Eflat6 is actually called Edim7. If this correction is made the chord will highlight correctly. On my copy of the song on the "Doc Watson" album it is in the key of F so capo 1 to play along.
