Okay, this song is easy, and it's a great tune.

Intro: G C Em D

Verse 1:

G            C
I met you in 82,
       Em                D
over a crate of beer and not a few
G                   C
I cracked a can and so did you,
Em                    D
we're going to change the world
G                   D
The ghetto kings of downside town
Em                       D
the estates and parks of our hallowed ground
G              C
Doing anything that we found,
Em               D
and on the river flowed

You'd take a drink from Rev. Jimmy Jones
You'd cross the street on the path the gunman roams
Thrown aside and left to waste, that was you - you knew your place
Wander round, get off your face, and on the river flowed

Chorus:
Em                         G      D   C
On and on the river flow - we are the undertow
Em                         G      D   C
On and on the river flow - we are the undertow

Verse 2:

I don't know how you made it through
all the smoke and brew you do
It sure has left its mark on you
but you're still with us today
Life goes on and round we go
and words can kill these things I know
Sometimes you cut deeply so,
but on the river flows
You'd set the table for barber Sweeney Todd
You'd clip the wings of any rising god
But man can't live on hope alone,
it can be cut all that is grown
Broke your spirit but not your bones
and on the river flows

Chorus:

Chorus:
Em                         G      D   C
On and on the river flow - we are the undertow
Em                         G      D   C
On and on the river flow - we are the undertow

Verse 3: (No music, just drums. You can strum open palm muted strings on this bit and it 
pretty good.)

You're working now - forced to the race
I know it left a bitter taste
But the rising tide had covered your face
Nothing you could do
But I still remember the day you said
That the river flowing through my head
Would take me far or leave me dead
And all you said was true

Outro:
G             C             Em            D
on and on and on and on and on and on and on
G             C             Em            D
and on and on and on and on and on the river flowed
G             C             Em            D
on and on and on and on and on and on and on
G             C             Em            D
and on and on and on and on and on the river flowed
