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 last flashing lee to appear 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
[Em]                  [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.
