[INTRO:] F ~ D  G    C  D  G    C  D  G    C  D    G

[VERSE 1:]
            F        C             G
I'm just an ordinary North Country man
        F                 C           G
I had a dream that bid me come here
           F                   C           G
Although naïve, I thought that I'd make my way
                 F                   C       G
But fair-weather friends is all that I had


[VERSE 2:]
     F                     C        G
They took from me all that I had to give
            F             C        G
Replenished me with their reason
          F                C         G
Don't you talk to me about your sacrifice
            F         C         G
Then ask of me if I'm leaving


[CHORUS:]
          C           F        G
I'm going down to the water today
            C            F    ~ ~ C G
I've got to wash away my sorrow
          C           F        G
I'm going down to the water today
             C          F    ~ D    G
Gotta get me clean by tomorrow___


[VERSE 3:]
            F        C             G
I'm just an ordinary North Country man
             F              C        G
My dream has edges that are fading
                 F            C          G
This year that's passed, it's not such a waste
            F              C          G
It's just a hard way to be learning


[VERSE 4:]
      F                    C               G
We've got no choice in the life that we're born to
         F                   C        G
Our only choosing, is in its living
              F                    C                   G
Now people in their own time, will show just what they are
            F                C      G
I hope this time, I know who I am


[CHORUS:]
          C           F        G
I'm going down to the water today
            C            F    ~ ~ C G
I've got to wash away my sorrow
          C           F        G
I'm going down to the water today
             C          F    ~ D    G
Gotta get me clean by tomorrow___


[OUTRO:]
               C    ~ Am G F  G
I've gotta get me clean________
                  C ~ Am G F  G
I've gotta get me clean________
                  C ~ Am G F  G
I've gotta get me clean________
                  C ~ Am G F  G  C ~ Am G F G C
I've gotta get me clean________
