[INTRO]
C G F Am Am7/G F C G
C G F Am Am7/G F C G


[VERSE 1]
C                                G
Well a town's a town when you're upside down,
F                   Am     Am7/G       F     
Lay your bones on a bed, it's that easy
G                 C    G
To have a kind of home

C                       G
Where the money goes I know too well
F                     Am       Am7/G       F
Spreads out like the jobs I've worked so many
      C                 G
Hard days don't seem to end


[PRE-CHORUS 1]
          Am     Em    F       C
Well I'm wasting time, wasting time
      F             C            G
And I only know one way to go to start again


[CHORUS]
       C            G
Let it roll, let it roll
         Am           Em
Down the banks of the Ohio
         F             C
When you can't rely on what you make
    F              G
To pay the rent on time

       C      G
So I'm goin' away,
     Am          Em
Down to the Fort Defy-o
   F                 C      G
Oh way down there in Cairo, IL
          C
I'm gonna stay


[FIDDLE BREAK]
(C) G F Am Am7/G F C G


[VERSE 2]
     C                       G
Now what do you say when the bottom falls out,
F            Am       Am7/G F   
Try to make amends with anybody 
      G              C     G
That ever caused you pain

        C                            G
It's no fault of mine that it should end this way
F                Am      Am7/G F       
And I wont' apologize to anybody 
       C                  G
For a thing that I can't change


[PRE-CHORUS 2]
                Am       Em          F      C
See I'm used to bein' alone, used to bein' alone,
             F             C             G
See it's the only way that I know how to get to where I'm goin',


[CHORUS]
       C            G
Let it roll, let it roll
         Am           Em
Down the banks of the Ohio
         F             C
When you can't rely on what you make
    F              G
To pay the rent on time

       C      G
So I'm goin' away,
     Am          Em
Down to the Fort Defy-o
   F                 C      G
Oh way down there in Cairo, IL
          C
I'm gonna stay

[PRE-CHORUS 3]
      Am Em     F                 C        
Woah Cairo, you build your levies tall,
           F              C
I want to sit beside the water
    G
And forget about it all.


[CHORUS]
       C            G
Let it roll, let it roll
         Am           Em
Down the banks of the Ohio
         F             C
When you can't rely on what you make
    F              G
To pay the rent on time

       C      G
So I'm goin' away,
     Am          Em
Down to the Fort Defy-o
   F                 C      G
Oh way down there in Cairo, IL
          F
I'm gonna stay
