Harlem River Blues  (Capo 3)
(YouTube the acoustic version of JTE playing this to get the feel)

[Intro]
E-A7-E-B7-E

[Chorus]
E                                              A7
Lord, I'm goin' uptown to the Harlem River to drown 
                     E                B7                   E
Dirty water's gonna cover me over and I'm not gonna make a sound 

[Verse 1]
E                                                                A7
I'm on a roll, mama, I gotta go, I gotta get there while I still can 
                   E                                            B7
Troubled days are behind me now and I know they're gonna let me in 
            E                                                            A7
So when you see me walkin' up the FDR, just a-singin' and a-clappin' my hands 
                                  E                      B7                   E
Tell my mama I love her, tell my father I tried, give my money to my baby to spend 

[Chorus]
E                                              A7
Lord, I'm goin' uptown to the Harlem River to drown 
                     E                B7                   E
Dirty water's gonna cover me over and I'm not gonna make a sound 

[Solo]

[Verse 2]
E                                                A7
Good times come and they go, even a good man'll break 
                       E                                             B7
He'll let his troubles bury him whole even though he knows what's at stake 
       E                                                            A7
So I'm taking no chances, carrying over while I'm still good in His grace 
                     E                           B7                       E
I'm no fool, mama, I know the difference between tempting and choosing my fate 

[Chorus]
2x
E                                              A7
Lord, I'm goin' uptown to the Harlem River to drown 
                     E                B7                   E
Dirty water's gonna cover me over and I'm not gonna make a sound

The line with "empty yard", I think, should be "walkin' up the FDR"

Sounds like 'empty yard' to me
