[Intro]

C Em C Em D 


[Verse 1]

Em              G 
See this ancient riverbed
D                C 
See where all our follies are led
Em                   D                   Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

Em             G 
I was just some towhead teen
D                            C 
Feeling 'round for fingers to get in between
Em                   D                   Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag


[Chorus]

Em        D      Em 
The season rubs me wrong
Em        D     C 
The summer swells anon
            Em           G 
So knock me down, tear me up
            D                         C 
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup
Em                   D                   Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag


[Harmonica Bit]

C Em C Em D 


[Verse 2]

Em                G 
Sweet descend this rabble round
D                        C 
Pretty little patter of a seaport town
Em                        D                        Em 
Rolling down the water and rolling down the old main drag

Em              G 
All dolled up in gabardine
    D                     C 
The lash-flashing Leda of pier nineteen
Em                    D                    Em 
Queen of the water and queen of the old main drag


[Chorus]

Em        D      Em 
The season rubs me wrong
Em        D     C 
The summer swells anon
            Em           G 
So knock me down, tear me up
            D                         C 
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup
Em                   D                   Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag


[Instrumental Break]

C Em C Em D 
Em G D C Em D Em 


[Chorus]

Em        D      Em 
The season rubs me wrong
Em        D     C 
The summer swells anon
            Em           G 
So knock me down, tear me up
            D                         C 
But I would bear it all broken just to fill my cup
Em                   D                   Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag


[Outro]

Em                   D                   Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag
C                   D                   Em 
Down by the water and down by the old main drag

its almost exact, except i noticed on the very last line, the first chord is changed to a C, before the D and final Em. pretty sure thats the correct chord there.

2nd ½ of verse 3 is: "lash flashing leda of pier nineteen." Read somewhere it's double meaning with women and boats. Whatever, cool song anyway.
