[Intro]

C D G
C D G


[Verse 1]

  D
I thought I knew what I was doing
D
I was wrong
D
Mistakes I've made and lived to tell
  C         G    D       C  D  G
I tell them in a song



[Verse 2]

  D
I knew a river wide and deep
D
Her banks were very tall
D
At one end was a mountain stream
    C           G    D
The other was a waterfall, boys
    C           G    D
The other was a waterfall



[Verse 3]

  D
I asked the old man by the river
D
He did not recall
D
The last attempt to ride a barrel
C        G    D       C  G  D
Over the waterfall



[Verse 4]

    D
The ferry boatman, he did tell me
D
That the chance was very small
D
None survived who went alive
C        G    D
Over the waterfall, boys
C        G    D
Over the waterfall



[Verse 5]

     D
So I built myself an oaken barrel
D
And inside I did crawl
D
I broke the record but I broke my back
      C        G    D     C  G  D
Going over the waterfall



[Outro]

         D
And it's been my luck to live to tell

The only tale I can

It don't hurt you when you fall
C         G   D            C  G  D
Only when you land, boys
C         G   D
Only when you land


C  G  D
C  G  D
