About this tab version
Not 100% sure if the D through Dsus2 in the chorus is correct but it works. Dave Alvin has these nice little running licks throughout the song. Was this info helpful? Yes No

[Intro]
D Dsus4

[Verse 1]
D Dsus4                 G                  D Dsus4
I was born by the river, it was paved with cement
        G               G                  D Dsus4
I was born by the river, it was paved with cement
           C                          A                     D Dsus4
Still I'd stand in that dry river, dreamed that I was soakin' wet
       
[Chorus 1]
G                  D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna rain
G                   D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna pour
G                   D Dsus4 Dsus2         
Someday that old dry river,            
   C        G    D Dsus4
It won't be dry anymore      

[Verse 2]
D Dsus4                             
I used to play in the orange groves,  
G                            D Dsus4
Till they bulldozed all the trees 
          G                         
I used to play in the orange groves,  
G                           D Dsus4
Till they bulldozed all the trees 
        C                            A
But I'd stand among those dead stumps 
    A                         D Dsus4
And smell the blossoms on the leaves

[Chorus 2]
G                  D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna rain
G                   D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna pour
G                   D Dsus4 Dsus2         
Someday all those dead trees,            
C          G      D Dsus4
They won't be dead anymore      

[Solo]

[Verse 3]
D Dsus4                    G                        D Dsus4 
I fell in love with a woman, but she did not fall for me
           G                 G                      D Dsus4
I fell in love with you baby, but you didn't fall for me
        C
Now I'm dry as that old river 
         A               D Dsus4
And I'm dead as those old trees

[Chorus 3]
G                  D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna rain
G                  D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna pour
G                  D Dsus4                  
Someday this old heart of mine  
C                G        D Dsus4
is gonna fall in love once more

[Chorus 4]
G                  D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna rain
G                   D Dsus4 Dsus2
Someday it's gonna pour
G                  D/Dsus4 
Someday that old dry river, 
     C        G        D Dsus4
Well it won't be dry anymore
C            G     D Dsus4
It won't be dry anymore
C            G     D Dsus4
It won't be dry anymore
C            G     D Dsus4
It won't be dry anymore
